Earlier this week, Green Day, Nokia and AT&T announced that they have joined forces to launch Nokia Music, a new music streaming service offering consumers free and unlimited access to playlists and songs from a global catalogue boasting 17 million tracks.
Nokia Music is a mobile experience exclusive to Nokia Lumia handsets currently available at all AT&T stores. AT&T is the nation’s largest 4G network. Consumers can stream unlimited music from a suite of over 150 exclusive playlists that are curated and kept up to date by an expert team of US based musicologists. The playlists span a wide spectrum of musical genres from underground Detroit house tracks to New York Philharmonic favorites.
Nokia Music also offers playlists created by global artists such as Green Day, who are an active part of the service curating their namesake playlists. Moreover, music fans can create their own personal soundtrack by selecting the Nokia Music ‘CREATE’ function that generates a playlist based on, and inspired by, the artists they love.
Fans will also be able to access three special playlists, curated by Green Day exclusively for Nokia Music and AT&T.
Green Day is currently preparing for the release of their trilogy of new albums — Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, and Green Day ¡Tré! — on September 25th, 2012; November 13th, 2012, and January 15th, 2013, respectively.
