The new Ricky Martin/Christina Aguilera duet "Nobody Wants To Be Lonely," sent to U.S. radio stations yesterday (Jan. 9), will not be released as a commercial single. However, Columbia Records is making it available to those who purchase Martin's new album, "Sound Loaded," which is No. 53 on The Billboard 200 this week.



The duet will be added to the next pressing of the album, replacing a version of the track by Martin only; until then, a CD single copy of the duet will be bundled with the album at retail. Those who have already bought "Sound Loaded" can receive the single as a download by putting the CD in their computer's disc drive as proof of purchase; they can also send in a sticker on the jewel case to receive the single by mail.



In other Martin news, dates are being eyed for a lengthy concert tour beginning in early spring. "I have to be out there," the artist told Billboard's Larry Flick last November. "It's in my blood. I've been doing this since I was 12. I don't know anything else. If I'm off the road for too long, I start to feel jittery. I need to feel that connection with people."
