It’s now official: Sony BMG selling DRM-free tracks via Amazon

As Business Week reported last week, Sony’s joining the Amazon.com MP3 store. The companies formally announced the deal this afternoon, just ahead of Macworld.

Amazon said the deal will make it the only outlet for DRM-free MP3s from all four major music labels. Sony tracks will be available later this month.

It gives the store more than 3.1 million tracks from more than 270,000 artists.
