Hello there PlayStation Blog. What a busy couple of weeks! Here is a quick update of what’s been going on in the world of Music Unlimited and the updates we’re bringing to the service.
Snoop Lion Channel
The former D-O-double-G’s transformation into Snoop Lion has been the talk of the town in recent months and this week has seen the release of his first album Reincarnation under his new moniker. To celebrate this, Snoop himself has exclusively selected a channel’s worth of his favourite Reggae tracks for Music Unlimited that you can now listen to here.

Next month we will be interviewing Dublin-based alternative group Kodaline and we’re calling on you to pitch in your burning questions for the outstanding quintet. Just post your questions below. The new album In a Perfect World is out June 10th, but you can listen to their latest single High Hopes here.

We’ve recently released an update for iOS which will fix any minor bugs you are experiencing using Music Unlimited on your iPhone. However, we are very excited to announce that our summer 2013 update will feature the long awaited offline capabilities, so stay tuned!
