App-based promo runs through January 6th
Apple has officially begun its 12 Days of Gifts promotion, made possible through an iOS app available in select markets. The first day's download is a collection of four Justin Timberlake tracks from his concert at the 2013 iTunes Festival, including "SexyBack," "Take Back the Night," "True Blood," and "TKO." A new offering will be available each day through January 6th; access to a download expires once the next one appears.
This year marks the first time that Apple has run a 12 Days promotion in the US. The company has used previous ones to give away not only music but also things like apps, books, and movies. It teased the formal start of the 2013 promo by giving away Lorde's "No Better" on December 16th.
