Hi.

Was just browsing on Google Play and saw they were offering 8 albums for free.

Sonic Highways - Foo Fighters
The Endless River - Pink Floyd
Motion - Calvin Harris
Dean Ray - Dean Ray
Chapter One - Ella Henderson
The Veronicas - The Veronicas
Four - One Direction
Wanted on Voyage - George Ezra

The page also shows an album from Pharrell Williams and another from The Script, but these have $6 price tags displayed.

This is within the Google Play Music shop. You probably do need a Google account. I have android devices, so not familiar with the iPhone app. Have used my PC to browse and download the albums.

I have my credit card loaded on the site, and all my receipts show $0.00, after I added them to my library.

Thanks!
I also got offered 3 months free of Google Play Premium so have signed up for that too.
Calendar reminder put in for mid March to remind me to cancel it again. :)  Unless of course I decide to keep it.

Yeah I passed on the One Direction but gladly took the Foos and Pink Floyd.  Cheers for the info oh and for those not totally put off by Xmas songs they have a few free Xmas albums too.  I grabbed a couple to be annoying to my family who're coming over Xmas day.

I kiwiharry solemnly declare that I did get the album titled Four by One Direction. This is purely for educational purposes to teach my 9yo son what bad music sounds like.

Signed kiwiharry.

Thanks, I downloaded a couple of the albums. I did have to update my payment information for it to show a $0 price.
What's the best way to download DRM free MP3s from Google play?

Thanks for the heads up! Already have the Foos, but Pink Floyd is a steal at that price :-)

I guess this is in the NZ Play Store? Doesn't show up for me, my devices are on the US Play Store. First time there has been a downside to being on the US Play Store.
