Apple introduced Spatial Audio in 2021 across the Apple Music catalog to deliver an immersive listening experience to subscribers. Now, the streamer is expanding the feature to jamming sessions recorded at Apple studios around the world as an opportunity for artists to “reimagine, and recreate” their own hits or covers of classics. The audio and video collections of the session will be available on the platform.
And Apple officially launch the new segment with releases from Carrie Underwood and singer/ songwriter Tenille Townes recorded at studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
Performing her songs “Ghost Story, “Blown Away” and the cover of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Mama, I’m Coming Home” in the Apple studio was an “incredible experience” for Carrie Underwood. She said:
“Being in the studio with Apple Music was such an incredible experience, and I’m excited to share these unique, stripped-down versions of three songs I love with my fans. We had a lot of fun reimagining these big, visual songs and presenting them in a different way.”
Tenille Townes performed her hits “Same Road Home” and “Somebody’s Daughter” and covered Etta James’s “At Last”. For her, the experience was “cool” and she felt honored to be part of a groundbreaking effort for Nashville’s music community.
“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. 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.”
