iTunes Radio adds new “First Plays” and “Ones to Watch 2014”

iTunes Radio is bulking up its content. On Tuesday the company added First Play’s of Ray LaMontagne’s new album “SUPERNOVA” and the new Damon Albarn album “Everyday Robots.” The new “Ones to Watch 2014” station has many acts including Betty Who, The 1975, Wild Cub, Mø, London Grammar, Courtney Barnett, Chet Faker, and SOHN.

I wasn’t sure about iTunes Radio at first, but with its customizable stations and ability to control the type of music it chooses, I’ve come to enjoy it. I’ve even purchased a few albums—strangely, some I thought I already had, but didn’t.

You can check out the new stations by bringing up iTunes Radio on your computer or favorite iOS device.

    I listened for an extended period over the weekend – way too many commercials. I swear it was worse than AM radio was back in the day.

      For $25 a year, all the ads go away and you get your current library available from anywhere as well.

      Well worth it IMHO…

  • Jim, is this even available in Canada yet? I’m in Ontario and it’s not showing up in iTunes.
