Apple Music has rebranded its The A-List: Alternative playlist as ALT CTRL, spotlighting new music across the broad spectrum of alternative music, Billboard can exclusively reveal. The playlist will be handpicked by the company’s staff curators.
“Alternative is more an attitude than a sound -- music that colors just a bit outside the lines,” reads the playlist’s official description. “ALT CTRL…is where you'll find the best of those new left-of-center tunes.”
ALT CTRL’s playlist art will feature a new artist each week, with the first cover stars being Haim, the Los Angeles pop-rock trio who just released the new single “Summer Girl” on Wednesday.
