Short and sweet. The iTunes store is streaming the entire “13” album for free. Go there, and look at the “Black Sabbath” page, and you can listen to a free streaming version of the entire Deluxe Edition of the “13” album now.
THE STREAM APPEARS ON THE ARTIST PAGE FOR BLACK SABBATH
NOT the pages for the 13 album itself.
UPDATE: It doesn’t work on a mobile/cell phone apparently – you have to be using the iTunes client software on your computer. Or on an iPad.
UPDATE 2: I’m getting word this is working elsewhere in the world besides the US. Go try!
UPDATE 3: The official site/Facebook/Twitter is now pushing this too. However, the link they give (http://www.itunes.com/blacksabbath) will not directly take you to the streaming version. Click this, then click “view in iTunes” if you’re not automatically sent there, and you’ll see it.
UPDATE 4: It’s apparently the 8 song standard version, not the 11 song Deluxe, or the 12 song Best Buy version.
UPDATE 5: I’ve seen some reports where if you have an older version of iTunes, this won’t work right. Update your software. You should be doing that all the time anyway.
A few music comments:
- Zeitgeist sounds like Planet Caravan Part II – but in a good way
- The promised “feel” of the early days is here, most definitely.
- FUCKIN’ A!!
