Apple Music has debuted Apple Music Sessions which is offering exclusive live music streamed in the spatial audio format. The new series launched with performances from Carrie Underwood and Tenille Townes recorded live at its new studio in Nashville, Tennessee.
Today, Apple Music is premiering Apple Music Sessions, exclusive live releases featuring some of the world’s most prolific artists and emerging artists, all in Spatial Audio. Recorded out of Apple Music’s studios around the world, Apple Music Sessions gives artists the opportunity to reimagine and recreate hits from their catalog, and creative covers of beloved classics. These unique performances are also filmed, resulting in a special, bespoke live collection comprised of brand-new Spatial Audio tracks and companion live performance music videos that will all be available exclusively to Apple Music fans worldwide.
Apple Music Sessions officially launches today with releases from Carrie Underwood and Tenille Townes, recorded out of Apple Music’s new state-of-the-art studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
During her performance, Carrie Underwood played some of her hits but then branched out with a cover of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Mama, I’m Coming Home” from his 1991 album “No More Tears“.
“I have always been an Ozzy Osbourne fan and ‘Mama, I’m Coming Home’ is one of my all-time favorite songs,” Underwood continued. “I’ve always thought it felt a lot like a country song, and I’ve wanted to cover it for a long time. This was a really fun opportunity for me to be able to finally make that happen. I hope we’ve done Ozzy proud and I hope he likes it.”
Country singer-songwriter Tenille Townes shared that she and her band were honored to be a part of the inaugural series debut.
“It was so cool capturing the spirit of how it feels to play my songs live with my band during the Apple Music Sessions performance,” Townes said. “The new space feels like it’s going to become an anchor for our music community in Nashville, and it was an honor to be a part of breaking it in.”
Apple has said that future performances will include Ronnie Dunn and Ingrid Andress but also plans to feature artists from other genres as well.
