Amazon Music goes deep on catalogue: starts with Bob Marley | Music Ally

Amazon Music has announced a new initiative called [Re]Discover, which it says will focus on digging into artists’ back catalogues.

It’s kicking off with Bob Marley this month: there’s a [Re]Discover branded playlist drawn from his entire career, but also the launch of an ‘Official Bob Marley Store‘ on Amazon’s main shopping service, bringing together music streams, downloads and physical editions, as well as merchandise.

However, there’s more to [Re]Discover than just Bob Marley: Amazon Music says that the first Tuesday of every month will see it pick a new ‘artist of the month’ for the initiative, as well as launching new playlists for others.

Already this month there are also [Re]Discover playlists for Alanis Morissette, The Chicks, AC/DC, Drake, Taylor Swift and Eminem, as well as genre-focused playlists spotlighting country, rock and new wave tracks from the 1980s.
