While it won’t help you listen to John Cage’s 4:33, you can now listen to most of Blitzkrieg Bop (2:12) and all of Napalm Death song thanks to the new 90-second preview in iTunes. Launched last night, the preview appears work with only a few select songs including Dark Fantasy by Kanye West.
Sadly, this only applies to songs 2:30 in length or more. Songs shorter than this will maintain the 30 second preview.
This feature has been a long time coming and was originally supposed to appear on September 1 but the National Music Publishers Association had to hash out “performance rights” for the 90-second song snippets.
