Update: Judging from comments, it looks like these songs aren't available in many countries. They're downloadable for us, but your mileage may vary.

Over the course of ten years, Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia fame has produced quite a bit of music. Now his record label, Size Records, is working with Google to give away 150 songs entirely for free. That's right - free. That's roughly a full workday of non-stop electronic music. I'm not sure if that much dance music is healthy, but that's no reason not to rave all over this deal and put a strain on your Wi-Fi connection right this moment.

Angello's celebrating with a party in Miami today, but you don't need to be present to join in on the fun. Size Records has put together an interactive website complete with trippy visuals and all the free beats you could want to stream.

Decade3

If the site's a little too over the top, here are links to download the music straight from Google Play. The fourth one is the most recent release, and it contains 99 songs all on its own.

A #DECADE of music:

Bertel King, Jr.
Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

  • Nick

    Oh yes! I thought my eyes broke for a second when I saw this!

  • http://www.westagemusic.com/ Marc

    Seems to be US only once again... :(

    • aberigle

      Nope, can listen from Spain

      • jusatin

        Can't in Finland :P

    • Kant73

      I'm in France, I have a free Google Music account and I can only listen, can't "buy" :/

    • Anup910

      The credit card address in google wallet should be a US address.

    • http://konart.me/ konart

      Can listen in Russia, but no "buy" option - only adding to wishlist.

  • Matt Coutts

    Appears I can't get them in Australia - "Add to wishlist" only. :(

  • BeryJu

    Can't get them without Free Google Play music account, which you can't get without Credit card.

    • Nathan Borup

      You don't have one?

      • BeryJu

        In Germany, people don't always have credit cards. It's just not as popular as in the States.

        • Nathan Borup

          Good point. Our system is pretty broken, you have to go into debt to get anything

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            Don't you have a debit card system as well?

          • Nathan Borup

            Yeah, but that doesn't build credit

          • pfmiller

            I've never gone into debt on my credit cards. Paying them off every month is actually better for your credit. Yes, a lot of people go into debt in the US from credit cards but that is not because they need to or should.

          • Nathan Borup

            Yes, that is what I do as well, but when it comes time to buy a house, in order for your credit to be really good, you have to have had a loan on something for at least a year

        • MrJamesBrown

          Can be a debit card... As long as it says visa/MasterCard etc on the front it's okay

    • thegermanguy

      Könntest du sie sonst downloaden? Bei mir steht nämlich " in deinem Land nicht verfügbar " :O

  • Daniel Traynor

    There is no option to buy. Just gives me the option to "add to wishlist".

      Hungary, too.

      • dave

        Well, grab yourself something to eat then!

        • Simon Belmont

          Haha. I'll admit, I thought of replying with something similar.

          Up-vote to you for doing it. Well done.

        • Marcell Lévai

          How funny you are. Not.

          • melhiore

            No humour sense?? Nothing at all??

          • Marcell Lévai

            I mean, you are the 486821963rd person to make this joke ;)

    • Hayden Lewis

      Same in Australia.

      • Benjamen Meiers

        I went to the site and clicked a dot and then clicked 'Get On Google Play'. It then said Google Play doesn't exist in Australia and that if I entered my email that they would send me all the songs to my email account. Now, I am a bit sceptical because they did say they would do it on the first of April.

      It's like it says:
      "Play Music all access? Yeah, YOU WISH!"

  • Mr E

    Oh thank Jeebus for the compliations. I was expecting having to click 150+ "Buy" buttons.

  • brkshr

    Never heard of any of them... am I missing out on anything?

    • clay

      nope. crap trance hiding in the "house" genre that is no way at all house music.

      • None

        You're implying that there's a why to distinguish between trance crap and house crap.

  • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

    Can we haz Metal compilation?

  • http://google.com/+ThomasBeling Thomas Beling

    This is US-only!? Not available in my country.

  • Rúben Santos

    Can listen to it, but can't add it to My Library.

  • Simon Belmont

    Looks like there's actually 171 songs in total. Not sure if there's duplicates as I just added them together.

    Pretty neat. Gonna grab em.

  • Pal

    From one (lazy) blogger to another, I suggest using and sharing this site:
    http://titlecapitalization.com

  • Josh Coppinger

    boom!

  • Francois Schneider

    Google Play Music isn't open in Canada, but they give the option to send the tracks by email.

    Just one quick question, what is the quality of their encodes ? Is it good enough to DJ with (ie 320kbps mp3) ?

    • Simon Belmont

      Yes. It's 320kbps MP3, I believe.

      I hope this helps. Cheers.

    • Simon Belmont

      Yes. It's 320kbps MP3, I believe.

      I hope this helps. Cheers.

    • enoch861

      It's 320kbps MP3.
      Perfect to DJ with unless you're DJing to audiophiles haha.

  • Okti

    Not available in Ireland

  • abobobilly

    I believe we still won't be able to get them "FOR FREE" as it asks to have a Credit Card. And here i thought i could use a US/UK VPN to get these songs added to my account :

  • lusky3

    I'm on a US VPN. Still says not available in my country. I signed up just fine a little over 1 year ago on the same VPN

    Is there a setting that might be saying I am in canada, even though my IP is not?.

  • iSadic™

    I confirm that are not available in Italy.

  • George Jenkins

    TYVM! Free is good.

  • https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=iWizard Bikram Agarwal

    And Google Wallet is again "review"ing my account and I can't "buy" anything from play store. DaFuq...?

    • primalxconvoy

      This is why the pirates always win.

      • https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=iWizard Bikram Agarwal

        Seriously. I spent the month of December and January fixing this issue. Had to send them id and address proof some 3-4 times, had to drop several posts on their product support thread, had numerous email exchanges. Finally wallet was restored on last week of January. I had missed solid explorer unlocked and poweramp sale because of this. And now again this. Next time I'm not even going to bother and start downloading whatever I want from "3rd party" sites.

  • http://www.fullmoonblog.com/ Flatlinebb

    The website is suffering from some serious time out issues :/

  • A2theC

    Listen people, you want free music from the US, make a US account its that simple.

    On a side note these compilations have been rolling out for a few weeks now, they finally post this up on twitter and twidiots finally find out about it. I've been listening for 3 weeks now because I actually go in the store every now and then and see stuff on the front page!

    • primalxconvoy

      Except that more often or not, the sign in page is also geo restricted and/or requires an American credit card.

      • A2theC

        Sorry, you don't live in the US? I don't get freebies from your country do I? (You want to share :)

  • http://rayshq.com/ Ray

    99.9% of the world left out yet again. Unless you're in the US... then you are the world, apparently!

    • A2theC

      Nah, we aren't the world, just the company is headquartered in this country.

  • jeffmik

    If your country doesn't have Google Music, it does say at decade.size.net "SIGN UP WITH YOUR EMAIL AND WE WILL SEND YOU ALL OF THE TRACKS DIRECTLY TO YOUR EMAIL ON APRIL 1."

    • Yaniv

      Just saw this...

      • Göran Sävström

        Is it just me, or is April 1 a very interesting date to promise thing like this?

        • Benjamen Meiers

          I wouldn't be surprised that when April 1st comes, if I get an email saying "Sucker! April fools, Google doesn't give a shit about you because you don't live in USA"

    • primalxconvoy

      Unfortunately, the link you gave was to some badly designed site with so much crap and pretentious design, it crashed my mobile browser every time. Was it designed in 2003?

      Could you provide the link that goes directly to the sign up form, please?

      • jeffmik

        Its not my site - although it works perfectly for me in Chrome for Android.

        There doesn't seem to be a direct link, just click the Google Play button on any of the songs and you get the email request popup.

        • primalxconvoy

          I know, sorry if I gave the impression I s dissing you or your help because I wasn't. I wish they had sorted out their site though.

  • Yaniv

    No Google Music at Israel?
    Fuck that shit, I'm using torrent.

    • primalxconvoy

      Let us know the links to the stuff that was freely available. I don't think a torrent containing exactly the same content would be illegal, right?

  • Erik Tomlinson

    It'd be really nice if Google Music finally came to Canada at all :(

  • Adamberts

    The music part of play store keeps timing out on my nexus 5.Anyone else having this issue? I tirned the phone off and on. I can access the app store but not the music store.

  • Micah Hilton

    I made a play list of all the songs and there are 171 songs. This includes remixes of the same song.

    I'm really happy I did not have to click "Buy" 171 times to get these songs.

  • primalxconvoy

    Could someone just upload and provide a torrent for all the free stuff, please?

    I can't be bothered to use the clunky, crud that is the Google Music app.

    Cheers in advance!

  • primalxconvoy

    The 4 Google Play compilation links are broken. Please fix.

    • Kristoffer

      works Like a champ for me, Are you in an area that HAS google play music? and which country, tracks aren't available everywhere through google play

      • primalxconvoy

        I just checked. No, I'm not. Usually, when an app is geo-locked, I can at least go to the Google Play link and get told that I can't download the app. With these tracks, the link just keeps flashing a "open link with these apps" pop-up. I had to open it with my browser for the webstore to inform me that Japan, as usual, is still light-years behind the rest of the world when it comes to digital content.

        Google needs to fix the Google Play app to properly notify people about geo-locked music and other media.

  • primalxconvoy

    If anyone is having problems accessing the site to contact them for the tunes, I used this link instead (but can't guarantee it is the correct one) :
