NEW YORK, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- The popular Google Internet search engine plans to unveil new capabilities that will allow users to listen to and buy songs more easily, industry sources say.

USA Today said the company is slated to introduce Google OneBox next week.

The new system would allow users searching for a song or musician via Google to quickly access the information, photos and music they want, instead of being mired in non-relevant Web sites as they sometimes are now. Those who want to hear a song will be able to click on a link that causes a screen to pop up and helps them connect to services such as Lala, iLike, iTunes or Amazon, the newspaper said.

"Radio has lost its mojo (for promoting songs,)" Phil Leigh, president of the market research firm Inside Digital Media, told USA Today. "When new releases come out, people do a Google search."
