Before SingStar was released for PlayStation 3, Sony revealed big plans for downloadable songs from its online SingStore service.

Since then, some customers have become frustrated by the lack of new downloadable tracks for the PS3's flagship karaoke game following the 44 tracks available via SingStore at launch.

GameSpot contacted SCEE to find out when new songs would be revealed and SingStar Studios sent this response earlier today:

"SingStar fans have been asking when the SingStore will be populated with more songs.

Our original vision, as outlined in early preview coverage of SingStar, was to have more than 350 songs available on the SingStore.

We are working hard to increase the volume of content as quickly as possible. Eighteen new tracks will be live in the SingStore from 18th January (15 English and 3 Spanish tracks) including songs from KT Tunstall, David Bowie, and Blur. This will be followed by an update the week of 4th February, including tracks from The Editors and MC Hammer, and we will be updating the SingStore with new content twice monthly thereafter.

Thanks for your ongoing support."

When GameSpot accessed SingStore this morning, there were 14 new English tracks available:

Arrested Development - Tennessee
Blur - Girls & Boys
Blur - The Universal
Blur - To The End
Blur - She's So High
Cartel - Lose It
David Bowie - Life On Mars?
The Fray - How To Save A Life
KT Tunstall - Suddenly I See
Roxy Music - Avalon
Supergrass - Pumping On Your Stereo
Supergrass - Richard III
