Apple has quietly added a number of artists from Sony BMG to the Australian iTunes Music Store. Songs are priced at the current price of AU$1.69 each. Select artists include Oasis, Franz Ferdinand, Pearl Jam, Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne, and more.
As previously reported, the store launched in October 2005 without music from the record label because of a contract disagreement with Apple. iTunes vice-president Eddy Cue said at the time that Apple was working with Sony BMG to get its artists on the Australian store.
