Adele’s new album ?25 ?doesn’t come out until Friday, but thanks to an extremely excited U.K. music retailer, you can now hear two-minute previews of every song. First single “Hello” and newly heard “When We Were Young” are both there, along with ?25?’s nine other as-yet-unreleased tracks. The streams aren’t embeddable, but you can listen here. Judging by these clips, “Hello” isn’t the only song on ?25 ?that will have you crying in public.

Dr. Dre’s New Album Streamed 25 Million Times On Apple Music In Its First Week

Compton, the new album from hip-hop mogul and Apple employee Dr. Dre, was streamed 25 million times in its first week on Apple Music. In addition to the streams, Apple says the album also sold half a million downloads through iTunes — a solid performance that was not quite enough to push it to number one in the US charts. Apple executives reported the figures in a statement to The New York Times, but the publication did not specify whether the figure was made up from complete listens to the whole album, or includes people who listened to individual songs.

The album, which came at the same time as, and loosely ties into NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, was an all-Apple affair. Dre announced the album on his own Beats 1 radio show, The Pharmacy, and it premiered a day early on Apple’s streaming service, before full release on iTunes on July 7th. For now at least, it remains an Apple exclusive, only available for stream on Apple Music and digitally through iTunes. Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine was positive about the results, saying that it constituted a good start for Apple Music. “We’re beginning to show what we can do in terms of communicating music to a worldwide audience and helping artists at the same time,” he told The New York Times.
