NOW That’s What I Call Rock!, the latest installment in the massively popular NOW multi-artist hits anthology series, will be released on Friday, January 22, 2016.
The recent success of rock artists Bring Me the Horizon, Imagine Dragons, Elle King, X Ambassadors, and Florence and the Machine indicates a serious renaissance in rock music.
As 2016 opens with Coldplay’s scheduled performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show and a spring season filled with sold out, rock-focused concert events, such as the “can’t miss” Rock on the Range and Carolina Rebellion festivals, as well as NYC’s Governors Ball, it’s the perfect time for NOW to debut its first “Rock” edition.
The new NOW Rock! collection offers music fans the opportunity to enjoy a carefully curated and eclectic selection of chart-topping and best-selling hits by Royal Blood, Shinedown, and more. The collection features a variety of acts that span the spectrum and sub-genres of rock music, making it a truly vast listening experience. NOW Rock! offers something for everyone, from alternative to hard rock, and provides a panoramic view of the current rock landscape.
NOW Rock! will also boast NOW’s ever-popular “WHAT’S NEXT” feature, which includes three up and coming artists that represent the future of the genre.
