Apple TV+ users who are into music have a treat in store as this weekend Apple turns up the heat on original content. Apple TV+ will stream a special AV experience of legendary grunge rock band Pearl Jam’s new Gigaton album. This will be a free stream for a limited period of a week. In addition, it also releases the highly awaited documentary on hip-hop pioneers the Beastie Boys, called the Beastie Boys Story. This will be available to all Apple TV+ subscribers. 

The Gigaton visual experience event is available for free in over 100 countries via the Apple TV app. It includes an immersive visual album which has been created with unique visuals that Pearl Jam produced in tandem with Evolve Studios. The events will be enabled in Dolby Atomos and Dolby Vision formats and will work on Apple TV 4K apart from the Apple TV app on macOS, iOS, iPad OS. 

To experience Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, one needs to be on a device which supports the technologies. Most of Apple’s iPhone’s since 2017 have featured the technology, but Dolby Vision was added to newer Macs only in 2020. Pearl Jam released Gigaton in January, marking their 11th studio album, which was unsurprisingly critically acclaimed. 

The Beastie Boys Story on the other side is an Apple TV+ exclusive and will be available to subscribers indefinitely. The documentary chornicales a 40 year friendship between Adam Horovitz and Mike Diamond taking viewers through the history of the band. It has been directed by their friend Spike Jonze. 

The documentary premieres on the 26th anniversary of their legendary album from 1994, “Ill communication” reuniting the band with Spike Jonze who shot their iconic music video for the song “Sabotage” which featured even in movies like 2009 reboot of the Star Trek franchise by JJ Abrams. This project grew out of the best selling book “Beastie Boys Book”.
