The New York Time has been buzzing about the launch of a new music website called Free Music in the United States, but the New York-based publication is going to take a little time to get its feet wet.
As part of the Times’ ongoing partnership with the US Music Coalition, the publication will be providing a digital version of its music catalog, including free downloads of some of the most critically acclaimed classical albums.
The Times says it plans to provide an updated music subscription service by the end of April, adding that “the service is free, but will require an annual subscription fee to use.”
Free Music will be available in the U.S. via Spotify and Apple Music.
It is also the first time that the New Zealand newspaper will provide a subscription-only music service to the United Kingdom, which launched its own subscription-based service earlier this year.
The UK service will be launched on April 6 and will cost £7.99 a month.
