In June, news broke that Target stores had secured the exclusive big-box retail rights for Pearl Jam’s upcoming album “Backspacer.” But while Walmart has its own digital music store and Best Buy owns Napster, Target doesn’t have a notable digital music presence. To level the playing field, Target and iTunes announced on Tuesday that the two vendors will team up for a new Target-exclusive section on the iTunes Music Store. Fittingly, the first album that will be offered up in this new pact will be Pearl Jam’s “Backspacer,” due out September 20th.
