The Back Page: Introducing Apple Music Video, Coming at Some Future Date
CUPERTINO, California — April 26, 2017 — Apple® today announced its new Apple Music™ Video™ service, which will feature a variety of original video content developed by Apple® and its partners. Headlining the new service is the company’s upcoming “Carpool Karaoke” series, which will launch later this year and be exclusively available to Apple Music™ Video™ subscribers. The company is excited to debut this new show, which was always intended to appear later this year, and which it had no plans whatsoever to release in April, no matter what Eddy Cue said.
“Carpool Karaoke has been a highlight of James Corden’s Late Late Show,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive officer. “It’s featured memorable performances from some of our greatest musical luminaries, from Justin Bieber to me. We are delighted to bring it to Apple Music™ Video™ at some future time which is not this time. And we’re all too happy to state that this was not simply an elaborate plan for Eddy to get a chance to bring his karaoke to the masses.”…
