UMC Partners with Apple and the TTC for Tracks On Tracks

If you want to know the difference between Rush Hour and Hush Hour, Universal Music Canada has partnered with Apple Music and the TTC for the launch of Tracks On Tracks, two curated playlists designed to entertain commuters who take "The Better Way" to and from work.

Each playlist contains 30 songs from the likes of Drake, Shawn Mendes, OneRepublic, Alessia Cara and others, with TTC Rush Hour dedicated to the morning with a bevy of up-tempo tunes, and TTC Hush Hour more designed for a relaxing ride home in the supper hour and evening. Both playlists contain more than two hours of music and will be refreshed every Friday exclusively on Apple Music.

"We are always looking for ways to enhance the customer experience on the TTC and our 'Tracks on Tracks' playlists program with Universal Music and Apple Music does just that," said TTC Chair Josh Colle in a statement.

"The TTC takes you where you are going and music transports you to another world," added UMC president Jeffrey Remedios. "It's fantastic to be announcing a program built to help guide Toronto riders' musical experience, reflecting the heartbeat and pulse of our city."

Following the announcement at Davisville Station on Aug. 30,  Colle, Remedious and Juno-nominated artist Shawn Hook hit the southbound subway as Hook performed a number of songs live for TTC commuters.
