Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s CEO and Chief Creative Officer said of the launch: “There are so many extraordinary British artists and it is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with them and showcase their incredible talent.”

Apple Music launched in June as a direct rival for streaming behemoth Spotify and newcomer Tidal, which is backed by Jay Z.

So far the service boasts 11 million users and has poached top talent, like former Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, for its 24/7 radio station: Beats 1.
