Make no mistake — landing a deal for streaming with Warner Music Group is no easy chore. Search for ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’ on programs like MOG, and you’ll probably be sorely disappointed in what results are returned. Tucked within Google’s Nexus blowout this morning was this nugget: the search giant has finally nailed down a deal with Warner, who will be “adding its full music catalog with new songs coming each day.” In other words, this completes the puzzle necessary for Google to confess that it’s “working with all of the major record labels globally,” with this particular deal paving the way for acts like Green Day, Madonna, Neil Young and RHCP to appear soon in the Play Store. Specifics on which artists are coming when remain elusive, but feel free to refresh like mad if you’re so inclined.
