Bonus content for Australian music fans on USB-stick albums

The Australian music industry is getting behind a new locally developed music format that will allow consumers to access an ongoing stream of bonus content and listen to their collections from any computer or mobile phone.From this week albums from Sneaky Sound System, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and local indie acts Grafton Primary and Skipping Girl Vinegar will be sold on USB sticks featuring new “DDA” digital album technology.People who buy the albums register with an online locker system that not only makes a back-up of the songs – which can then be accessed from any other computer or mobile phone – but also provides access to a swathe of bonus content provided by the artist on an ongoing basis such as photos, videos, lyrics, artwork, new tracks and even concert tickets.
