taylor swift 1989 xbox music

Microsoft is giving pop music lovers a huge deal this week by offering '1989', the brand new album from mega-popular artist Taylor Swift, for the price of just 99 cents on Xbox Music.

The price cut, which is also revealed on Microsoft's recently launched Music Deals app, should last for the next week. Microsoft has also offered 101 other albums for download for $1.99 or less for the next seven days as well. However, the company must have made a major effort to secure the the rights to Swift's long awaited, and heavily hyped, '1989' album for such a low price point the same week it is released on CD and via other music download outlets like iTunes, which has priced it at $12.99.

As with all of the Music Deal discounts on Xbox Music, this is just for US residents. Do you plan to purchase and download '1989' before the 99 cents deal runs out?
