Apple and Beats are pushing ahead with a streaming service that would aim to take on the likes of Spotify and Rdio. Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails is said to be playing a major role in the new venture.
The new music app, which is a collaborative effort between Mr. Reznor and other Apple and Beats employees, including Jimmy Iovine — who founded Beats with the hip-hop star Dr. Dre — will feature the streaming music service with many of the same characteristics as the Beats Music streaming service, one Apple employee said. Those may include curated playlists and a more vivid visual appeal, while conforming to Apple’s sleek and minimal design aesthetic, one person said. The name Beats...

Peter Kafka, writing at Recode, looks at how Apple and Beats may be relaunching their service later this year.
Apple executives, led by media head Eddy Cue and Beats Music founder Jimmy Iovine, have been arguing that the music business “needs to get behind a paywall,” say people who have talked to them. Apple bought Beats last year, partly to help it gain a foothold on streaming music just as iTunes sales of digital downloads had started to drop.

Techcrunch is reporting that Apple plans to shut down Beats Music.
Many engineers from Beats Music have already been moved off the product and onto other projects at Apple, including iTunes. It’s not clear when exactly Jimmy Iovine and Dr Dre’s music service will be shut down or what Apple will do with streaming, but every source with knowledge of the situation that we talked to agreed Apple plans to sunset the Beats Music brand.

Update: Some more reporting from Re/Code calls into question the Techcrunch story.
Tom Neumayr says the TechCrunch story is “not true”, but wouldn’t elaborate. I can elaborate a bit more, based on conversations with people familiar with Apple’s thinking:...

If you want to remove U2's album Songs of Innocence from your iTunes collection -- this is how you do it.
Once the album has been removed from your account, it will no longer be available for you to redownload as a previous purchase. If you later decide you want the album, you will need to get it again. The album is free to everyone until October 13, 2014, and will be available for purchase after that date.

A new iPhone app called "Next" looks to do for music discovery what Tinder did for dating.
Musicians use Next to record short videos of their music -- anywhere from 10 seconds to 3 minutes. Users then log on and watch 30-second excerpts of the songs, swiping left to dismiss and swiping right to like. If you find an artist you're interested in, you can follow them on the app or tap to share via SMS, email and Twitter.

Apple is reportedly in talks to buy Beats Audio. Crappy software, crappy headphones. Hope this is for more than just the IP.
Apple is reportedly in the process of buying Beats for $3.2 billion, according to a new report from The Financial Times. The deal includes both the streaming music service, as well as the company that produces headphones and speakers. The move, which would be Apple’s largest acquisition, could be announced as soon as next week, the paper says.
