EMI Music has agreed a "wide-ranging" pact to license its music catalog to Last.fm services in Europe and the United Kingdom.

The deal, unveiled today, allows the social networking site's users to listen to such EMI acts as Lily Allen, Corinne Bailey Rae, Norah Jones, Kylie Minogue, Keith Urban and Robbie Williams.

In a statement issued today, EMI Music global head of digital Barney Wragg commented, "The ability to discover music through social interaction on the service, coupled with their seamless integration of opportunities to purchase or subscribe, makes this agreement of huge value to EMI and our artists."

The deal covers Last.fm ad-supporting streaming radio service, and its premium subscription-based premium interactive option.

Earlier this month, Warner Music Group became the first major label to strike a content agreement with Last.fm.
