On Friday, Apple announced Apple Music Sessions: short, tailor-made performances made especially for Apple Music. These sessions each feature a handful of tracks recorded in Spatial Audio at Apple’s own studios around the world. The performances will also be filmed so Apple Music subscribers can get the feeling of an intimate live performance.
The first two performances, available immediately, by Carrie Underwood and Tenille Townes were recorded from Apple’s new studios in Nashville, Tennessee. You’ll find them embedded below.
Underwood performed three songs: “Ghost Story,” a stripped-down version of “Blown Away,” and a cover of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Mama, I’m Coming Home.”
Country singer-songwriter Tenille Townes performed “Same Road Home”, “Somebody’s Daughter” and a cover of Etta James’s “At Last”.
The first Apple Music sessions are all from Nashville and feature country performers, with Ronnie Dunn, Ingrid Andress and others soon to join Underwood and Townes. Apple promises to expand this unique series to other locations and genres in the future.
