Apple has released its first 'Live From London' recording featuring Stereophonics.

The digital release is an iTunes exclusive and was recorded live at the Apple Store on April 19. Five tracks of the band's nine-song set feature on the EP: Superman; Doorman; Devil; Dakota; Pedalpusher. The collection costs £3.16.

Apple has also released this week's free single of the week, 'Hombre' from electronic band, M.I.A.

Newly-uploaded exclusive and pre-release tracks from iTunes this week include songs from Weezer, Teenage FanClub, Rammstein, Foo Fighters and Bananarama.

Fresh iTunes Essentials sections include: John Lee Hooker, Meat Loaf and Progressive rock. Apple is also offering a new celebrity playlist, but it is from Phil Collins.

Apple customarily updates tracks available through iTunes on a Tuesday in the UK, but seems to have waited until Wednesday this week, as Apple's second anniversary approaches.

Apple launched iTunes in the US on April 28, 2003. As the date approaches rumours grow that the company intends extending the service to new countries.
