Apple expands access to Apple Music For Artists beta program

Apple has issued another call for signups for its Apple Music For Artists program, an analytics tool that helps musicians examine and track the listening habits of their fans.

The initial beta for the program, announced in January, was limited to a few thousand artists; the official Apple music tweeted on Tuesday to request a wider array of artists to "reserve a spot in the beta" by signing up.

The "overview" page offers a look at such metrics as plays, radio spins, song purchases, album purchases and more. Beta participants can also get a geographical breakdown of who is listening to their music. The data goes back to when Apple Music first launched in 2015.

At present is is unclear when the Apple Music for Artists program will emerge from beta.
