Free Album Streaming: Bruce Springsteen's "The Promise," Cee Lo Green, Matt & Kim, & More

Here is a sampling of some of the new and reissued albums currently available for free streaming online. Some of the albums I'm especially interested in hearing: "The Promise," the collection of tunes Bruce Springsteen recorded during the sessions for "Darkness on the Edge of Town;" the tribute album to the great (and highly influential) Brazilian band Os Mutantes; and the self-titled album by Black Dub, produced by legendary producer Daniel Lanois.

See the respective websites for a full listing of album previews being offered. The date that streaming ends is given, when known.
