Apple’s ‘iTunes Single of the Week’ promotion, (as most of you will probably already know), has been running for quite some time now. It offers the chance for everyone who has (or owns) an iTunes account to download one FREE song per week.
We haven’t really paid much attention to the promotion in terms of weekly coverage.
Today, that changes. With the launch of RazorianFly 6.0 at the beginning of last month, we added two new subject areas to our daily coverage: Movies and Music — so, we felt it only right that we begin covering the biggest weekly music giveaway online.
Every Sunday, (starting now), we’ll be providing a short rundown – and previews – of the ‘iTunes Single of the Week,’ for those in both the United States and United Kingdom – (our two largest audiences).
Consider it your weekly reminder to download a FREE music track.
iTunes Single of the Week – (UK)
… And what better week to start than this week, where the UK single of the week is actually performed by a band that has “Apple” in its title!
This week’s single of the week is brought to us courtesy of The History Of Apple Pie. The London-based band formed just over eighteen months ago and consists of Stephanie Min (Vocals), Jerome Watson (Guitar), Kelly Owens (Bass), James Thomas (Drums) and Aslam Ghauri (Guitar).
Their debut single – “See You” – (from the band’s just-launched debut album, Out Of View), is an overall upbeat pop mix of rock guitar riffs and soothing vocals, which, (although simple in their generality), are a pretty pleasurable listen.
iTunes Single of the Week – (US)
In the U.S, however, this week’s FREE single arrives courtesy of the San Francisco, California-based alternative folk rock music group, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.
Right on the heels of their new album “We The Common,” (expected to make its debut in the U.S on Tuesday, and tomorrow for those in the UK), the band’s latest single “We The Common (For Valerie Bolden)” is the title track of the aforementioned album, and brings with it a folk-style sound mixed with uplifting Ooo’s.
