Kanye West doing MySpace preview

'808s & Heartbreak' available online Saturday

NEW YORK -- Add Kanye West to the list of artists previewing their new CDs on MySpace Music.

The rapper's "808s & Heartbreak" doesn't come out until Monday, but fans can hear the entire CD starting at 3 a.m. Saturday EST.

West is the latest act to debut a CD on MySpace before its official release. Guns N' Roses, Paul McCartney and Beyonce have all done the same. The Killers will do so on Saturday with their new album "Day & Age."

It has become a regular practice to offer some kind of live stream of new CDs in the days before their release on one Web site.
