Unlike other iTunes “First Plays,” for which Apple has taken advantage of its recently launched U.S-only music streaming service – iTunes Radio, in order to deliver an exclusive ‘first listen’ of select albums it chooses – before they hit mainstream radio, Apple is instead offering the ability to listen to the exclusive stream directly from McMorrow’s artist bio page.
