anything in the brakes? does it come and go away when you brake? does it get louder when you turn left or right? Could be a wheel bearing, help diagnose that by turning fairly hard left and right, listen to the sound. If you turn right and it gets louder, its your right side...vise versa for the other.

More info will be needed. Like what Mike suggested, plus does it vary pitch with speed? Does it do it all the time, or only at a specific speed?
etc...
