Wal-Mart launched a music download service today that sells all MP3 digital tracks for only 94 cents. What’s even better is that their MP3 tunes are DRM free. You can get an entire album for $9.22.

The music will play on most devices including the iPod, iPhone, and Zune. Wal-Mart is selling music from major record labels Universal and EMI Music. "As we consistently strive to help our customers shop smart at Wal-Mart, our new 'DRM-free' MP3 digital tracks give them the ease and flexibility to play music on virtually any device at a great value," said Kevin Swint, Wal-Mart's senior director and divisional manager for digital media. "Also, we're excited to launch our MP3 catalog with major record labels such as Universal and EMI Music that includes music from popular artists like The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, KT Tunstall, Amy Winehouse, Maroon 5, George Strait and Nelly."

Wal-Mart plans to keep offering their existing WMA-format music and is allowing customers to choose MP3 downloads at 256 kbps for 0.94 cents a track or WMA downloads at 128Kbps for 0.88 cents per track.
