VELVET REVOLVER: 'Contraband' Preview Available Online is currently offering a free audio preview of the entire VELVET REVOLVER album, "Contraband", due on June 8 through RCA Records. Listen to all of the album's 13 tracks at this location.

In other news, Billboard is reporting that VELVET REVOLVER's "Contraband" will be one of three albums BMG (RCA's parent company) will issue this summer with copy protection.

BMG refers to its application of the SunnComm technology as "copy management." BMG Canada, going forward, is also planning to apply copy management in tandem with the U.S. schedule.

BMG's copy management allows consumers to make three copies of a CD. They can also share tracks by e-mailing links through SunnComm's TuneShare PromoPlay feature. The e-mail recipients can listen to tracks for 10 days before they are timed out.
