Bandsintown has partnered with Sony's Music Unlimited subscription service to bring song previews to its concert listing app. Bandsintown users will now be able to preview music by artists whose concerts are listed in the app. After a 30 day free trial, song previews will be limited to 30 seconds.
Left out are local bands who do not have songs on the music service.
This deal allows Bandsintown to offer a new fetature at little of no cost, and Sony hopes that users will convert to paid subsribers after the 30 day triail. With increased competition throughout the music tech sector this is likely one of the many partnerships we'll see announced this year.
