YouTube has just re-launche its YouTube Music page with a host of new features to help guide you on your audio-visual quest, and several guest curators to help out as well, announced Tim Partridge, Music Marketing Manager in a blog post on YouTube Global blog.
Look at the electric guitar adorning the YouTube logo — it’s there today to celebrate the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Guide to Rock, who have the first hand-picked playlist on the new music page.
“To help you get more into music on YouTube we’ve also partnered with music experts and tastemakers to provide you with daily playlists and picks. In the coming weeks you’ll be able to check out curations from SPIN, Vice, XLR8R and more. Some of YouTube’s music vloggers will also find a new home on the page, like the “Internet’s busiest music nerd,” Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop,” informs Partridge.
“Over the next five days some of your favorite music stars will be sharing a personal guide to their genre, including David Guetta’s Guide to Electronica on Friday, Lady Gaga’s Guide to Pop on Saturday and Eminem & Royce Da 5’9″‘s Guide to Hiphop on Monday.”
On YouTube Music you can now find:
- “recommended videos and artists based on the music videos you’re watching
- local concert listings in your area paired with artist videos
- the YouTube Top 100 – your invaluable source to the most popular music based on what the community is viewing,” Partridge said.
