Got to get the bands to want to do it and be able to afford the contracts for that. Most mags can't.
Here Classic Rock have resorted to "Fan Pack" editions of new albums with a special edition of the magazine included. They've done this for Slash, Motorhead and Whitesnake so far.
They also convinced Joe Elliott's new band Down N' Outz to give away their new album on the magazine. Metal Hammer recently did the same with The Defiled.
But these are wealthy magazines with a huge circulation. They can pay for these things.
