iTunes Pass debuts with Depeche Mode: Exclusive content automatically downloaded to your account


Apple and EMI have devised another way to pry precious dollars from your wallet. It’s called iTunes Pass [iTunes link], and it’s available right now. With it, music fans will gain access to exclusive songs, remixes, etc. that are automatically downloaded to your account. First band up? Depeche Mode.

For $18.99, Depeche Mode fans can subscribe to the Pass and iTunes will periodically download all sorts of Depeche Mode songs, remixes, vidoes and whatnot. Buy the Pass now and you’ll be among the first to hear the group’s new single, “Wrong.” The new album, Sounds of the Universe, comes out on April 21 in the U.S.

Embedded here, a fine Lexicon Avenue remix of “Only When I Lose Myself.”
