Apple Music’s latest exclusive – 808: The Movie

808-movie-3

Apple was clear from the jump that it had bigger plans for its streaming service than just audio. Today, the Apple Music subscribers get an exclusive look a music-focused documentary: 808: The Movie. We first learned about the film that chronicles the history of the iconic 1980s drum machine back in 2014 and it was set to hit theaters last year. It debuted at SXSW in 2015, but had yet to see a wider release.

808: The Film is directed by Alexander Dunn with You Know Studios and Atlantic Records’ own Atlantic Films teaming up for the production. Narrated by Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, the film takes a deep dive into music history with commentary from Afrika Bambaataa, Beastie Boys, Questlove, Rick Rubin, Lil Jon, Diplo, Phil Collins and many others. As you might expect, there’s also a soundtrack on which some of those names make a second appearance. Both the film and its audio counterpart are streaming on Apple Music starting today.

If you’re not an Apple Music subscriber, the documentary is available for pre-order on iTunes for $17 and is slated to release on December 16th. Vinyl versions of the soundtrack and several other bundle options are also available from the Warner Music Store. For a brief look at what you can expect from the full-length film, watch the official trailer down below. Meanwhile, that Cash Money documentary that was supposed to stream on Apple Music this fall has yet to be released.

More “Carpool Karaoke” will be on Apple Music soon

“Late Late Show” viewers can get even more “Carpool Karaoke” soon on Apple Music.

Host James Corden is launching an extended version of the segment, which consists of 16 half-hour episodes that will run exclusively on the streaming service, reports Variety.

Don’t expect it to look exactly like the take on the “Late Late Show,” though: This time, Corden won’t be hosting the whole series. Instead, each episode will have a different celebrity “host” in the driver’s seat with more time for interviews. These interviews will pair up stars like John Legend and Alicia Keys, and Seth MacFarlane with Ariana Grande.

Co-executive producer Ben Winston said, “What James does is so special and singular, it was silly, as we figured out how to make a full series, to try and replicate that.”

The idea was borne from the demand of non-musical celebrities who wanted to participate.

“We wouldn’t do Will Smith on [‘Late Late Show’],” Winston said. “So many people have been getting in touch with us, big movie stars, and we’re like, ‘that’s not really for us,’ but here with Apple Music it’s perfect.”

There is no release date yet for the show, which will be Apple Music’s first original series.

Christmas is coming, which music is your favorite for Xmas

Here collect some classic Christmas songs, you will find one to your taste and like it. If it is necessary, i will show the order link.

‘White Christmas’ – Bing Crosby

'White Christmas' – Bing Crosby

It can be easy to forget the true meaning of Christmas. But, when you’re nogged out of your mind this year, try and picture a stable, with animals, shepherds, Santa, Cliff Richard. Look, here’s Jimmy Stewart from ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, Twiggy from the M&S adverts and, er… Mr Blobby. The truth is the power of Christmas nostalgia itself is greater than the real memories. Hence, all of us can hark back with Bing on this Irving Berlin-penned ’40s number to a white Christmas just like the ones we used to know, even if our true past is full of crushing disappointments (December 25, 1993 – no Hornby train set). It’s a feeling that is tenuous and transient, yes, but also entirely wonderful.

‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ – Mariah Carey

All I Want For Christmas Is You

It’s not the best-selling Christmas anthem (that’s Bing at number five) and heck, it didn’t even make it to Number One in the UK, but Mariah tops our list of the greatest ever festive songs for one good reason – it’s catchier than a Christmas cold. Originally released in 1994, this selfless plea to be with a loved one has everything: sleigh bells, pop hooks, the right balance of schmaltz and soul, and uplifting vibes strong enough to launch a jump-jet.

‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ – Slade

'Merry Xmas Everybody' – Slade

Noddy Holder and his troupe of platform-wearers continue to blight our television screens each December with their frightening fashion sense. There’s a reason for that, of course. It’s the joyful simplicity of 1973’s ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’, which is guaranteed to inject that euphoric, slightly drunken, Christmas-love vibe into the festive season.

‘Santa Claus’ – The Sonics

'Santa Claus' – The Sonics

This super-charged ’60s garage rock tune reveals Santa for the nihilistic, no-nonsense ball-breaker he truly is. Lead singer Gerry Roslie drawls a list of Christmas requests (including a ‘twangy guitar’ and ‘cute little honey’). To which Santa responds: ‘Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing’. What a badman.

‘Must Be Santa’ – Bob Dylan

'Must Be Santa' – Bob Dylan

The 2009 release of Bob Dylan’s festive charity album, ‘Christmas In The Heart’, was somewhat puzzling – but the song and accompanying video for ‘It Must Be Santa’ proved that it was all just good fun for a good cause. A rip-roaring, bellows-pumping, call and response number, it’s made all the more entertaining for hearing such gleeful lyrics sung in that trademark 40-a-day snarl.

Jingle Bell Rock – Bobby Helms

Jingle Bell Rock – Bobby Helms

Following its release in 1957, this rockabilly ditty topped the Christmas charts five years in a row, making it a veritable holiday classic even by the early ’60s. Today it retains a towering presence in the Christmas canon, as synonymous with the holiday as tinsel and paper crowns.

‘River’ – Joni Mitchell

'River' – Joni Mitchell

Right from the opening piano chords (‘Jingle Bells’ gone bittersweet) you know this is going to be a Christmas song with a difference. ‘Tis the season, but Joni’s feeling blue: she’s lost her baby (maybe Graham Nash) and all she wants to do is skate away, but that’s not easy when you’re spending Christmas in sunny California. It’s as painful and pitiful as anything she ever recorded. Happy Christmas?

‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ – Paul McCartney

Good old Macca. Whereas Lennon could be relied upon to make impressive political statements (when he wasn’t laying about in bed all day), McCartney is the master of the charmingly naïve pop opus. This little ditty isn’t going to shake up your festive paradigm, but it won’t half stick in your head.

‘Last Christmas’ – Wham!

'Last Christmas' – Wham!

There are so many winning elements to Wham!’s 1984 smash that its status as a solid gold Christmas staple – covered by such diverse talents as Taylor Swift, Coldplay and Crazy Frog – is forever guaranteed. A ballad of doomed romance, it features sleighbells and synths, plus some truly memorable knitwear in the video. But what really sets ‘Last Christmas’ apart is George Michael’s heart-on-sleeve delivery: his genuine heartbreak horror (‘My God! I thought you were someone to rely on’) and wistful, sexy whispers. The words ‘Merry Christmas’ never sounded so sultry. And that’s what makes this song so very special (special).

‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ – Darlene Love

'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' – Darlene Love

This song is cursed. It entered the world in 1963 (as part of ‘A Christmas Gift for You’) the same day that President Kennedy left it, and was withdrawn soon after. Years later, its producer Phil Spector was convicted of murder. Still feeling festive? Despite the horrific associations, it’s impossible to keep your cockles cool once this galloping soulful sleigh ride gets going. In typical Spector style, ‘Christmas’ is the sound of a huge group of people singing and playing their hearts out in one take. It radiates fellowship, community and togetherness and still manages to shine brighter than the star of Bethlehem.

Apple Music attracts 20 million subscribers in 18 months

android-apple-music

Apple Music is continuing to pick up subscribers at a strong pace, as the company confirms to Billboard that the streaming service has crossed the milestone of 20 million paying subscribers. Apple said it had 17 million subscribers three months ago, 13 million in April, and 11 million in February. Spotify is still significantly ahead with over 40 million users, but Apple Music has only been available for a year and a half.

Referral reading: Pros and Cons of Apple Music.

Over 50 percent of Apple Music users are outside the US, and over 60 percent of them haven’t bought anything on the iTunes store in 12 months or more; Apple services SVP Eddy Cue says that “the vast majority are new customers.” Apple Music saw a major revamp alongside iOS 10 this fall.

“Of course we want more and we want it to go faster — we’re hungry!” Cue adds. “We can’t forget that, as an industry, we still have very few music subscribers. There are billions of people listening to music and we haven’t even hit 100 million subscribers. There’s a lot of growth opportunity.”

Drake Channels Taylor Swift For New Apple Music Ad

drake

Drake is Taylor Swift’s biggest new fan, if Apple Music is to be believed.

(Referral reading: Play Taylor Swift’s 1989 Album on MP3 player )

 

Remember Taylor Swift’s Apple Music commercial, when an overzealous T. Swift face-planted while listening to Jumpman by Drake and Future?

The Canadian rapper has returned the favor while listening to Bad Blood in his ad for the streaming music service, which debuted during Sunday’s American Music Awards.

With lip syncing that could win any Battle and dance moves that are totally GIF-worthy, Drake shows “no mercy” during his workout.

Naturally, the artist with parody Twitter accounts dedicated to his softer side starts belting out the lyrics when we’re reminded how “sad” it is “to think about the good times.”

Whether Swift wanted to get us thinking about if they’re really a couple or not, she shared the ad and her enthusiasm for the promo on Instagram, writing “YES” and using the thumbs up and muscle emojis.

Which should make this struggle easier to deal with, right, Drake?
