CBS plan to relaunch MP3.com this month, according to reports, taking the site back to its roots as a website for unsigned and independent music, possibly seeing an opportunity to pull in some of the unsigned bands looking for a new place to host their tracks and information as MySpace fades.

Confirming they had plans for the MP3.com domain, which CBS acquired when it bought CNET in 2008, the group’s David Goodman told Music Week: “MP3.com is an interesting brand as it has global recognition and still gets around three million unique visits on a monthly basis. 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”.

It is thought the new look MP3.com will be very much marketed alongside CBS’s other online music platform, Last.fm.
