BEATS 1: THE FIRST 10 SONGS

Hope you remembered to upgrade the iOS on your Apple device. In any case, here are the first songs we heard on Beats 1, the service's global radio flagship. The free-form set from the breathless Zane Lowe included:

City, "Spring King"
Beck, "Dreams"
Jamie xx, "Gosh"
Skepta, "Shut Down"
AC/DC, "For Those About to Rock"
Hudson Mohawke, "Warriors"
Pharrell, "Freedom" (a "World Record" premiere; played twice in a row, in typical Zane fashion)
Courtney Barnett, "Dead Fox"
Chemical Bros. f/St. Vincent, "Under Neon Lights"
Shamir, "On the Regular"

If you'd like to know more about any of these acts—or just want to hear them right now—you know where to go. Tomorrow, Zane's first interview will be with Eminem.

You can check out our notes on the first few hours here

Our conversation with Team Apple is here.
