Find new tunes with Apple Music

Here's how to tune into the new Discovery Station.

For me, finding new music isn’t easy.

I’m always on the lookout for new things to listen to, but as an aging Gen Xer, I’m hopelessly out of touch with the zeitgeist.

I mostly rely on the BBC. I constantly stream British radio shows using the great BBC Sounds app.

I’ve never had much luck with Spotify, but the service has a reputation for great music discovery. It’s one of the major reasons people say they prefer Spotify over Apple Music. Spotify does a better job.

But Apple has several music discovery tools, including a new Discovery Station that recently rolled out with zero fanfare. We took a look, and found there’s a lot to like.
