Nokia signs exclusive Kylie deal

'X' available five days ahead of official release via Nokia Music Store

Kylie fans are being offered the singer's hotly awaited X album via the Nokia Music Store five days ahead of its general release, following a deal with record label EMI.

The album is available from Nokia's online music store for £8, with individual tracks at 80p.

Users can download the album directly from optimised Nokia devices, including the N81 and N95 8GB, as well as via a desktop PC or notebook.

"Less than a month on from launch, the Nokia Music Store is already bringing the best music to fans in the way they want, when they want it," said Richard Sandford, regional manager at Nokia Music UK & Ireland.

Sandford added that further exclusives with other artists would follow.

Nokia Music Store is also offering an exclusive version of the latest Girls Aloud album, Tangled Up, and has exclusive deals with The Killers and Andrea Bocelli.

As well as downloads, the Nokia Music Store offers a monthly subscription for PC streaming for £8.
