“The channel will showcase Burberry’s collaborations with emerging and iconic British talent including Lilla Vargen and Alison Moyet, and feature performances, songs and films alongside regular playlists, the London-based company said Tuesday in a statement,” Roberts reports. “The partnership with Apple is the latest in a series of initiatives by the trenchcoat maker to widen its influence and reinforce its image as a purveyor of cool. Subscribers to Apple Music will be able to follow Burberry and gain access to musical updates and behind-the-scenes stories. Fans will also be able to comment or share the content via messages, Facebook, Twitter and email, Burberry said.”
