Unfortunately, right now if you want to try out iTunes Pass you have one option: Depeche Mode. The band’s newest album Sounds of the Universe is being offered as part of the first iTunes pass. For $18.99, you get access to the first single right now as well as another track that regular pre-orderers won’t get. And when the album comes out, you’ll obviously get that too.
We really think this is a great idea and a natural extension of the iTunes store model. To see more, click the iTunes Pass (iTunes Link) for Depeche Mode.
