Digital music downloads from Warner Music Group are now available at online digital music store eMusic.com. U.S. members of eMusic’s digital music club can access tunes from major labels and independent labels distributed through Warner’s Alternative Distribution Alliance division that are not currently sold on eMusic.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. EMusic is No. 153 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide (a PDF version of the company’s financial and operating profile can be ordered by clicking on its name).

“As a leader in the music industry’s transition to a predominantly digital music business, we have worked hard to encourage and support innovative partners and creative business models that offer our artists unique ways to reach their fans,” says Stephen Bryan, senior vice president of digital strategy and business development at Warner Music Group. “We are pleased to be making our music available to eMusic’s passionate membership.”

Warner Music Group record labels include Asylum, Atlantic, Cordless, East West, Elektra, Nonesuch, Reprise, Rhino, Roadrunner, Rykodisc, Sire, Warner Bros. and Word.

EMusic signed a similar agreement with Sony Music Entertainment in June 2009. The deal included songs at least two years old from Sony labels including Arista, Columbia, Epic and RCA.

The eMusic catalog totals more than 7.5 million tracks and represents every music genre, the company says. EMusic sells monthly membership plans beginning at 24 credits for $11.99. Members can buy single tracks starting at $0.40 and albums starting at $6.
