Warner Music unveils CD-DVD combo
New disc is a standard CD on one side, but adds videos, photos and interviews on reverse.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Just when you needed one more electronic gadget to choose from, Warner Music Group introduces a new combination CD-DVD called the DualDisc.

On one side, it's a standard CD. Flip it over, and it's a DVD, complete with enhanced surround sound, videos, interviews, photo galleries, concert footage and lyrics, according to a press release from the company.

"DualDisc offers music consumers a wider array of options to enhance their experience with our artists," said Warner Music executive John Esposito. "DualDisc's unique audio and video features give our artists a broader palette for creative expression."

The new discs, which the company says will have the same suggested retail price as standard CDs, go on sale Tuesday with an offering from two artists: Simple Plan's new album "Still Not Getting Any" and The Donnas' new album "Gold Medal."

In addition, the Grateful Dead's "American Beauty" and Trapt's self-titled album will be made available on DualDisc Nov. 23.

DualDiscs do not require new equipment and are compatible with nearly any device that can currently play a CD or a DVD, according to the company.

Warner Music Group was formerly a part of Time Warner (Research), CNN/Money's parent company, but it was sold recently.  Top of page
