Apple streams entire Red Hot Chili Peppers album in iTunes

Apple’s iTunes Store is streaming the entire Red Hot Chili Peppers’ I’m With You album.

In addition the album is available for pre-order for US$12.99 with an expected release date of August 30, 2011.

We’ve tested the stream and, for the first 10 minutes at least, it has played uninterrupted.

      1. Love that! Spotify wasn’t worth the hype, its promoters (Zuckerberg among them), be damned. And I’m not the sneaky Samsung or Eric Schmidt type; I always pick up. That’s why I bring four bags every time, as I “double-bag”.

  1. yep, I’ll be buying this on cd from Mainly because the cd is cheaper than an a totally inferior product from Apple.

    Still can’t get my head round why itunes is popular over here. The itunes album is more expensive than the cd version and lates face it sounds worse than the old cassettes with no sleeve notes to boot.

      Instant gratification? By the time you receive your CD, us iTunes buyers will have listened to the album a dozen times or more. (Unless you pay for expedited shipping, in which case, it’s not cheaper than iTunes any more, now is it?)

      And as for “sounding better”, who the fsck cares? I listen to music while bicycling, at work, in the car. As long as the recording is relatively CD-quality, I’m not going to be able to tell the difference. Seriously, the only people who care about high-fidelity recordings are audiophiles, who are, by the way, some of the most delusional people on the planet. Audiophiles are what keep companies like Monster rolling in loot.


      1. exactly.

        Here, i’ll make the average Audiophile cringe even more…
        I listen to my music (the small library i DO have..) with 1 earbud while i am at work… OMG… it’s not even Stereo… 😉

  2. it doesn’t seem to want to work for me on my iPad. I just keep getting sent to the Artists’s Page. I don’t see any options beyond the usual purchase/preview links.

    1. yeah I’m not a big fan of RHCP either, But so far it’s not bad… Not the greatest i’ve heard, but it isn’t bad.

      I will bet you that Apple streaming the entire album… WILL generate sales. Before this thread, I wouldn’t have cared they put out a new album.. now… I am actually listening to it.

      The question is how much sales will this generate?
