Limewire continues to operate on a very prickly terrain, though dealmaking and ambitious product development efforts are still underway.
The latest involves a deal with Merge Records, according to details shared with Digital Music News early this morning. Merge is the latest to join the oh-so-legit Limewire Store, which now has 6 million songs.
The Merge catalog includes Spoon, Arcade Fire, Superchunk, Magnetic Fields, Neutral Milk Hotel, She & Him. “Adding content partners is always exciting, but it’s especially so now right now, as we ready our new music service for launch later this year,” relayed Tom Monday, Director of Partner Relations for LimeWire Store.
