CBS is about to relaunch music website MP3.COM at the end of JUNE as a companion site to LAST.FM. MUSICWEEK.COM reports that the relaunch will offer one million free downloadable tracks from new and unsigned acts.
"It is an interesting brand as it has global recognition and still gets around three million unique visits on a monthly basis," CBS INTERACTIVE MUSIC GROUP Pres. DAVID GOODMAN said. "It’s mainly from search, as when people look for free music online, ‘MP3.COM’ comes up. We believe there is a lot of opportunity to refresh it."
