Microsoft Gives Windows 10 Users Top 10 Albums of 2015 for Free

Microsoft is making 10 of the top albums from 2015 available in the Windows Store, for free as a holiday special. It’s for a limited time and US only.

Microsoft is spreading a lot of holiday cheer, and the latest surprise is the company’s generous offer of the top 10 albums of 2015. Don’t expect any Adele, Bieber, or Swift in this collection, but there are some famous acts such as Selena Gomez and Ellie Golding. Christina Calio from the Groove Team made the announcement on the official Windows blog today:

Today I’m happy to let you know that we’re making 10 of the top albums from 2015 available in the Windows Store, for free for our Windows 10 fans as a gift from us for the holidays, and to say thank you for the support*! The eclectic group of albums we’re presenting includes the newest albums from Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, and Breaking Benjamin. We’ve included artists and albums nominated for multiple Grammys at the upcoming 58th annual Grammy Awards, which will take place this February in Los Angeles.
