Online digital music store eMusic.com Inc. has added music downloads from EMI Music’s catalog. EMusic now has catalog agreements with three of the four major music labels.

The deal between eMusic and EMI Music applies to EMI’s albums at least 12 months old. Terms were not disclosed.

U.S. members of eMusic’s digital music club can now access more than 15,000 tunes by Brian Eno, Radiohead, Lily Allen, Beastie Boys and other artists and groups.

“We look forward to working with eMusic and giving our artists another way to connect with their fans and to find new audiences,” says Mark Piibe, EMI Music’s executive vice president of global business development.

EMusic previously negotiated catalog access agreements with Sony Music Group and Warner Music. The fourth major label is Universal Music Group.

“We recognize that we need to expand upon the music that we offer to better cater to the varied tastes of our membership base. In adding more music to our catalog, we will always honor our independent roots,” says Adam Klein, CEO and president of eMusic, No. 183 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide.

In the months ahead, eMusic plans to roll out other new features for members such as improved ways to search music and access their downloads, the company says.
