Apple is continuing its low-key rebranding of Apple Music playlists. Its latest move is to change the name of its name of its “The A-List: Alternative” alternative music playlist.
This comes a couple weeks after Apple switched the name of the “A-List: Hip-Hop” playlist to “Rap Life.”
The new name of “The A-List: Alternative” is “ALT CTRL,” a (somewhat retro) reference to the keyboard shortcut. The playlist highlights music across the whole alternative music sub-genre.
“Alternative is more an attitude than a sound — music that colors just a bit outside the lines,” reads Apple’s description for the playlist. “ALT CTRL … is where you’ll find the best of those new left-of-center tunes.”
Its playlist art will now feature a different artist every week. The first is LA rock trio Haim, who recently released their new single “Summer Girl,” the bassline of which was created using GarageBand.
