A Quiet New Apple Music Feature Is a Win for Record Labels

Along with its high profile rollout of Spatial and Lossless Audio to users on Tuesday, leading up to the launch Apple Music also more quietly unveiled a feature last month giving record labels their own pages the same way artists get.

Apple Music listeners can find pages for major labels like Def Jam and Capitol as well as indies like XL Recordings or Dead Oceans in the search bar, or a link to the label page may show up at the bottom of some of their artists’ albums. Label pages are virtually the same as individual artist pages that were already on Apple Music and give a glimpse of a label’s biggest hit records, newest releases and a brief bio on a label’s history or influences. Apple built about 400 labels’ pages on the platform at launch and will be updating the pages.
