Introducing Humble Music Bundle, Humble’s First Foray Into The Music Industry


The Humble Music Bundle is here, and it’s a little disappointing that there are no games.  Though what is not disappointing is the chance that they are taking.  This is not the first time the Humble has offered music, but this is the first time that it has offered just music.

On offer:


Twelve Remixes Of Four Songs

MC Frontalot


They Might Be Giants

Album Raises New And Troubling Questions

Christopher Tin

Calling All Dawns

Hitoshi Sakimoto

Best of the Valkyria Chronicles

Jonathon Coulton

Greatest Hit

With names like They Might Be Giants, this package has the potential for real success.  At an average–as of this writing–cost of $8, you get 6 albums for the price of  They Might Be Giant’s latest release.  Gamers are not left for dead however, with Valkyria Chronicles making an appearance showcase the best hits from that series.

You won’t have to act right away, as there are still 14 days left to make up your frugal, indie minds.  The bundle debuted less then one hour ago and has already sold 2122 units.

From Humble:

Support six amazing musicians.Pay what you want for the Humble Music Bundle and receive six digital albums from the Internet’s finest songsmiths. Christopher Tin, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, MC Frontalot, and Hitoshi Sakimoto have assembled their best cuts for your listening pleasure. And if you pay more than the average price, you’ll also receive OK Go’s Twelve Remixes of Four Songs!

So, you’ve supported Humble for games, and even movies.  Will you support this new initiative for music?
