It's Google China's Music Search:

http://www.google.cn/music

It will release in a few days

See:http://googlemagazine.blogspot.com/2008/07/blog-post.html

Interesting enough, when I click on the link, it redirects me to: http://www.google.cn/music/search?q=周杰伦

Which on that page says:

Your HTTP Host header www.google.cn doesn't match the whitelist Host headers: music.google.cn,.*.(borg|prod).google.com.?:d+$ .

We would have denied your request but since you are coming from an internal IP we thought this page would be helpful for you.

That internal IP message will happen just by loading the music directory:

www.google.cn/music/

It redirects as a search query.

I was just going to post the same as Ionut. Although there may be a new / improved music search service coming, this isn't anything new as far as I'm aware.

http://www.google.cn/music/

It's new to the robots.txt which is still cached.

By the way Brian, I also checked that it was new to the robots.txt, I just used the strike through in the post so that the two things – news of a potentially upcoming new Chinese music feature or service, vs this robots.txt change – would not be mixed up when reading. There would probably have been a better way than this formatting. Oh well.

GOOGLE 'THIRD PARTY' NEGATIVE EARMARKING AND BLOCKING ACCESS TO CARTELS OR PAYING PERSONS OR POLITICAL CONTRACTS ??
HELP – ALL SEARCH KEY WORDS LINKING TO TOPICS I WROTE ABOUT HAVE BEEN BLOCKED THE LAST FEW YEARS!!!!!!!!
I have had very unpleasant experiences recently with Google – and have no way of contacting them to inform them of the problem.
Recently I have posted on the following URL of Wall Street Journal on issues of US Supreme Court ruling that allows any other punishment for rape than execution – (& Presidential candidates recent spontaneous comments) at the following URL :
http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2008/06/25/obama-condemns-supreme-court-decision-in-child-rape-case/#comment-147222

This was top of search results for several search engines – until I noticed, yesterday, that the Google search engine had blocked all searches that could direct to that specific web blog.
This is a most blatant breach of human rights and right to access information.
I am sure that most Google staff would be surprised how certain lobbies or cartels could try and enforce such control, but this is a crucial proof of most dangerous manipulation with public information.
Moreover, my name had initially been the only one on search engines – but soon there were innumerous that began adopting my name – and I even got a mysterious letter from someone from Facebook who claims to have added me as a friend on Facebook, where I never have registered. At the same time, I received innumerable spam mail with virus and phishing attempts.
All references to my name P. Shahir, and Prince Shahir , had been systematically and surgically removed from Google search engine, and where I previously was the only search result, now, the there are many hundreds of mysterious references to irrelevant archive information and Arab names of horses (I love horses and people for that matter) – many of search results quite repetitive and flooding – and yet litterally ALL reference to substantial issues, have all been ''exponged' from the face of the earth ' . To protect me, I have name and address protection issues , but this must not be used as a guise to repress my existence, as I too must enjoy the rights and freedoms as any other created by the same Almighty!
