This can be released for sale to the public in a variety of different formats.

Typically, these are the songs from albums that are released separately for promotional uses such as digital download or commercial radio airplay and are expected to be the most popular.

As digital downloading and audio streaming have become more prevalent, it is often possible for every track on an album to also be available separately
