Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington Filmed Carpool Karaoke Episode For Apple Music Just Days Before His Death

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington was filmed in an episode of Apple’s upcoming show Carpool Karaoke: The Series just days before his death.



Earlier this month, the band tweeted an on-set photo with Bennington pictured alongside Linkin Park band members Joe Hahn and Mike Shinoda, and Ken Jeong, best known for his role as Ben Chang on the NBC sitcom Community.

Carpool Karaoke: The Series, based on the popular segment from The Late Late Show with James Corden, is set to debut August 8 on Apple Music. Apple did not immediately respond when asked if Linkin Park’s episode will still be released.

Bennington committed suicide last Thursday, resulting in an outpouring of grief from his family, friends, and fans around the world. Linkin Park has set up a website in his memory and tweeted a message about him earlier today.

“Our hearts are broken,” the band said. “You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world.”

“I am in shock and heartbroken,” tweeted Jeong. “All my thoughts and prayers go out to Chester and his family and friends at this time.”

Apple Music to Feature Exclusive Arcade Fire Live Performance on July 27

Apple today announced that it will feature a live global performance of popular Canadian indie band Arcade Fire on Friday, July 27 at 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time.

Arcade Fire is promoting its upcoming album, Everything Now, which is set to be released on July 28, a day after the live Apple performance.



Several songs from the new album have already been released and are available on Apple Music, including the popular Everything Now single, which came out in June.



Outside of the annual Apple Music Festival, Apple has not featured many exclusive live concert performances, but the company has been pursuing exclusive content aggressively since launch.

Apple has purchased the rights to several documentaries that are exclusive to Apple Music, including Can’t Stop Won’t Stop featuring Sean Combs, and Kygo: Stole the Show, and it has had several exclusive album releases with artists like Frank Ocean, Drake, and Taylor Swift.

Apple Shares Trailer for ‘Kygo: Stole the Show,’ a New Documentary Coming to Apple Music July 26

Apple today announced the air date for its newest music-related documentary that will be shown exclusively on Apple Music, Kygo: Stole the Show. The documentary, which chronicles the life of Norwegian DJ and musician Kygo, will premiere on Apple Music on Wednesday, July 26.

Apple shared the air date in a new trailer that has been uploaded to the company’s YouTube channel. Starting with the early stage’s of Kygo’s career, the documentary will follow his journey as he works his way up to a mega performance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York, an event that took place in January of 2016.

The film offers fans a chance to see an intimate and unfiltered side of Kygo and his team as they prepare for an unprecedented moment in Kygo’s career. The documentary features cameos from a few of Kygo’s closest friends and collaborators including Steve Aoki, Lyor Cohen, Julia Michaels, Pete Tong, Martin Garrix, Parson James, and more. With an upcoming sophomore studio album due for release later this year, Stole the Show offers riveting insight into the artist’s origin, creative process, and aspirations, along with never-before-seen behind the scenes footage, showcasing who Kygo is both on and off the stage.

Apple has been focusing heavily on exclusive video content for Apple Music in recent months, and Stole the Show will follow Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story, the documentary that follows the rise of Sean Combs, aka “Puff Daddy,” and the rise of Bad Boy Records throughout the 1990s. Can’t Stop Won’t Stop premiered as an Apple Music exclusive on June 26.

Other original content includes Planet of the Apps, which launched in June, and Carpool Karaoke: The Series, set to premiere on August 8.

How to get 12 months of Apple Music for the price of 10

Do you use Apple Music on a regular basis and foresee continuing to do so? Are you paying your membership month-to-month? If so, how would you like to get full twelve months of uninterrupted Apple Music experience for the price of ten?

All you need to do is switch your individual month-to-month membership to an annual plan, where available, and you’ll instantly save a cool twenty bucks. Apple quietly introduced this new subscription option in June 2017, following the Worldwide Developers Conference.

Where is this available?

Not all countries are eligible for the $99 annual option.

Thankfully, Apple’s support document titled “Availability of Apple Music and iTunes Match” lists the markets in which customers can access this annual membership, as well as get an Apple Music student membership, access Beats 1 Radio and more.

By the way, the company has long offered 12-month Apple Music Gift Cards for $99. If you’re a student, your cheapest option would be Apple’s special $4.99 per month student plan.

Without further ado, here’s how to switch from a monthly family, individual or student Apple Music membership to an annual one, a savings of $20 during the course of your subscription:

How to switch to annual Apple Music membership

1) Open the Music app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod.

2) Tap the For You tab at the bottom.

3) Tap the profile icon or your profile photo in the upper-right corner.

4) Choose the option labeled View Apple ID.

You may be asked to sign in with your Apple ID or use Touch ID.

5) Tap Subscriptions.

6) Choose Apple Music Membership from the list of your active subscriptions.

7) Tap Individual (1 Year) underneath the Options headline.

8) You’ll be charged $99 upfront for your annual plan, saving you $12 versus what you’d spend for the full year on a $10 per month plan. Confirm your selection, then tap Back.

Can I do this in iTunes or App Store?

You can switch to an annual membership in iTunes for Mac and Windows, too:

1) Launch iTunes on your computer.

2) Click View My Account under the Account menu.

3) Click Manage next to Subscriptions underneath the Settings heading.

4) Click Edit next to Apple Music Membership, select the option Individual (1 Year) and confirms the selection by clicking Done.

To switch to an annual membership in iOS App Store:

1) Open App Store on your iPhone, iPad or iPod.

2) Tap the Featured tab at the bottom.

3) Scroll to the bottom of the page, tap your Apple ID then choose View Apple ID.

4) Tap Subscriptions.

5) Choose Apple Music Membership from the list of subscriptions.

6) Tap the option Individual (1 Year) to switch to the annual plan.

Don’t worry if you have already purchased a $99 Apple Music Gift Card—simply redeem the card in desktop iTunes, App Store or the iOS Music app and you’ll be asked if you’d like to switch to the more affordable $99 per year Apple Music plan.
