Apple Music hypes The Force Awakens with new Star Wars featured station

Star Wars Radio

Take a break from all the Christmas music and check out another new featured station from Apple Music’s Radio section today: Star Wars.

The stellar movie-themed station features tracks picked from the soundtrack of each film in the collection (even the prequels) so you can get hyped for The Force Awakens opening this week.


Need to catch up on the series before the 7th film’s release? You can buy all six movies bundled on Amazon or iTunes in HD for $89.99, $30 off the price of buying each film separately. While Apple is featuring a special Star Wars radio station, Google has been going all out to celebrate the 7th film’s release with full service takeovers and free Star Wars-themed Cardboard VR kits.

While the iTunes release of The Force Awakens is still light years away, you can pre-order the original soundtrack to the new film on iTunes now ahead of its release on Friday. In the meantime, find the Star Wars station under the Featured Stations section in Radio in iTunes on the Mac or PC and Music on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV.

No spoilers, presumably, even though the folks at iTunes say they’ve seen the special premier earlier this week:
