Last year, you may remember my extensive coverage of those free samplers released weekly on facebook.com via the Apple Students group (here it is if you don’t). Well, Facebook and iTunes just teamed up with Sub Pop Records (the label of artists like The Shins, whose album Wincing The Night Away I reviewed earlier this year).
This playlist, which includes eleven tracks, is much more organized than last year’s offerings: the songs are arranged into a single album to make the list as a whole easier to find, and also have attached album art.
So could Facebook and iTunes be teaming up with more labels this summer? Who knows. The only thing to do now is check that Facebook group – word is that the offer is limited and set to end on June 30.
