Update 2022: This website no longer exists. Use some other alternative instead now.
Musicupdated.com is a free website which keeps you updated with details regarding release of new music album and album leaks, along with information on upcoming albums.
The website provides information on latest released albums, which can be categorized based on genre, country and area. You can also get basic information about various artists and bands. The best part of the website is you do not have to register to use the information it provides. But if you want to get email notifications regarding artist or band’s album release or leak, you have to register and subscribe to the artists or bands you like by following them; as would do on Twitter.
What this website actually does is, it provides links to other music websites. So, it does not stream songs, until and unless they have been embedded in the webpage. Sadly for those music enthusiasts who love albums of Indian artists the website does not yield much. I could only find Sonu Nigam in the website, there is no mention of singers like A R Rahman, Shreya Ghoshal, etc. Neither singers like Lata Mangeshkar, R D Burman could be found in the website.
