iTunes is offering its second cut-price sale – this time offering 25 albums from new artists at under £5 per title.

"If you find yourself at a loss when glancing through the music weeklies or you're a music fan looking to save a little coin, iTunes has put together a great selection," the service urges on the dedicated page for the cut-price collections.

The selection includes albums fromm Ben Taylor, Goldspot, Bugz In The Attic, Mr Hudson and the Library; The Sunshine Underground; The Hedrons; Willy Mason and others.

Apple recently ran a similar promotion in which it offered a range of classic rock albums at a low price.

The company is currently understood to be under pressure from labels to introduce flexible pricing on music sold through the iTunes Store.

In related news, Paul McCartney's new album (his first on the Universal-distributed Hear Music label from US coffee chain, Starbucks) Memory Almost Full is available for pre-order through iTunes now.

McCartney's former label EMI Music confirmed plans to make all McCartney's previously-released solo material available online "soon".
