The channels will feature “career-spanning hits, rare recordings, interviews, and more.”
SiriusXM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein said in a statement, “It’s like catching lightning in a bottle for SiriusXM to be able to offer authorized channels from these iconic artists, not only to our subscribers, but at a time when our app is free to everyone. These channels, combined with our already incredible set of artist-dedicated channels, makes SiriusXM the ultimate audio destination to bring fans closer to the artists they love, and at a time when people can use some great music.”
Aside from their greatest hits, rarities and deep cuts will also be included in the channels. As for Rolling Stones, their channel debuted in 2008 but has now been updated and expanded.
