Apple Music launches ‘Come Together’ collection amid pandemic
Apple on Monday added a brand new collection, “Come Together,” to its Apple Music streaming service for customers participating in COVID-19 social distancing, quarantine and lockdown measures.
Featured within the Browse tab of Apple Music, “Come Together” touts a number of playlists stuffed with a whole bunch of hours of widespread music, music movies and picks from Beats 1 Radio.
Most playlists within the new collection are generated to mirror distinct moods and act as repositories for genre-specific tracks chosen primarily based on listener desire. Apple Music can also be introducing seven new lists that span the spectrum, from lo-fi beats to R&B and pop, stories Engadget. New choices embody Isolation Icebreakers, Home-School-Strumentals and Social Distancing Social Club.
“To say that these are challenging times is an understatement. But wherever you are and whatever you’re experiencing during the pandemic, we’re all in this together,” Apple Music’s editors write within the collection’s description. “Whether you’re trying to find distraction while working, living, and playing at home or struggling to find a positive outlook under major life upheavals—music can be an escape and a salve for yourself and whoever you’re hunkered down with. Because social distancing doesn’t need to mean antisocial.”
The new curated “Come Together” playlists can be found within the U.S. at the moment and might be rolling out to different international locations all through the week.
Today’s premiere follows final week’s debut of Apple Music’s “Get Up! Mix,” an upbeat sampling of tunes handpicked to maintain listeners constructive through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to the brand new playlists and playlist collections, Beats 1 hosts are forging forward through the disaster and utilizing their iPhones to conduct interviews with artists like Elton John and Hayley Williams.
