Not meant to be a comprehensive list but more of a guide to legally listen/stream A3!’s songs outside of Japan (or via other slightly grey areas).
I need to thank whoever who used the search term to get to my blog. I don’t provide downloads but enjoy this guide!
First, A3! has full releases of their music on Spotify in Japan as well as overseas. I can’t confirm for individual countries but I’m somewhere in Southeast Asia and I can listen to a lot and most of their songs on Spotify if not all.
Pony Canyon has also created official playlists for the game’s music releases. One has the short versions like the ones you heard in the game or the full versions.

I’ve also created two Spotify playlists that’s a little more comprehensive than the ones by Pony Canyon. One has the entire discography (some tracks are grayed out, meaning not available in your region) while the other only has the vocal tracks. Useful for those without a subscription, I think.

For those who don’t know how Spotify works, you can listen to whatever music you like for free. There’s a catch though. There will be ads and that you can’t choose which specific tracks you can listen to.
It plays on shuffle and has a limit to how many tracks you can skip until an ad pops up on the smartphone. You can overcome this on the PC/Web version or iPad (other tablets included) app but the skip track limits will still be in place.
Paid subscription removes all the above limits and allows you to listen to the music offline by downloading them on the device.
Second, iTunes and Apple Music
According to the official Twitter account, their music is also released on Apple Music. I have also found the link for their 1st theme song single and the latest release by the rookie members of the A3! family on Apple Music (United States).

I won’t mention Japan’s region-restricted sites such as mora and recochoku but Youtube can be helpful at times like this. I think Google Play Music is also another option if you’re on Android and have that in your region.
Lastly, if you have the cash to import, you can buy their CDs from CDJapan and Amazon Japan for example. It’s not cheap but worth the effort and money since the design, colours and the music are absolutely amazing. Plus! If there is still stock with the codes (if they have not expired!), you can get a special card of your choice that you can’t get elsewhere!
P.S. The app is getting an English release in an agreement between Liber and Cybird.
