The 9PM Eastern Time embargo is up and everyone including the NYTimes is reporting that Google will release their new Cloud music service, called Music Beta by Google tomorrow.  Not a great name – but it implies that it is a work in progress, likely hampered by the music labels.

It will feature 10 times the storage of Amazon’s Cloud service at up 20,000 songs which will be uploaded by a service which Google bought last year called SimplifyMedia.

Since Google doesn’t have licenses from the labels, the service will be limited to playing users’ own songs.  Other features, like sharing songs with friends and buying songs from Google won’t be available until deals are signed.

By the way, is anyone else excited to see Janes Addiction live tomorrow night?
