In the new world of media, content companies must make all their offerings available to their audience wherever and however they want it – broadcast, cable, PC or stream, mobile or wired, scheduled or on-demand. In that regard, our friends at Apple Music will be launching a browser version of its music streaming service. Paid subscribers will be able to access the streaming service from any web browser by logging in using their Apple ID. The browser version of the application is currently in beta, offering listeners full access to their playlists and Beats 1 Radio. As part of the overall strategy, Apple confirmed that it is withdrawing iTunes and replacing it with a new package: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV. Apple clearly has a strategy for matching every new trend in music technology with a clear and impactful response.
This is not a drill. Canadian pop superstar returned yesterday with three more sultry, sweet jams.
“Party For One”, a self-empowering ode to loneliness – was released in November as a single, yet fits in very well with the two fresh tracks.
Rising to internet fame as a result of the unforgettable 2012 anthem “Call Me Maybe”, Carly Rae Jepsen has proved to be more than a one hit wonder. Although the singer hasn’t scored a hit as big as “Call Me Maybe”, she has learned how to delicately finesse a distinct pop style, one that highlights themes of emotional vulnerability, romance, heartbreak, and self acceptance.
“Now That I Found You” is very reminiscent of the bouncy “I Didn’t Just Come Here to Dance”, featured on Carly’s third LP, Emotion. While “No Drug Like Me” is luscious and sassy, with lyrics like “And if you make me feel in love, then I’ll blossom for you / If you make me open up, I’ll tell only the truth“.
The release of three tracks (hopefully) means a new Carly LP is in the works.
Check out the new tracks below.
