The Next MP3 Generation

A new music file format has been created that can embed lyrics, videos, artwork and comments within it’s coding.
It will be called MP3DNA.
Spearheading this new design is Karlheinz Brandenburg, the man who brought you the mp3.

Mr Bach said: “These files will be dynamically updateable so every time the user is connected his file will be updated. MusicDNA will have a test version in the spring with a full roll out at the end of the summer.”

The new format will go head to head with Apple’s iTunes LP, which gives users a similar experience with bonus tracks, lyrics and video interviews.
