MySpace is set to launch a new music download service that will allow users to download songs, mobile phone ringtones and desktop wallpapers from the site.

Merchandise and gig tickets will also be sold from artists’ profile pages.

However, the company have not yet confirmed how much music downloads and other services will cost.
