A big part of the concert experience has always been hitting the merch table, and picking up a T-shirt or a poster from your favorite artists. It’s sadly been about a year since that was possible in person, but now fans can get their merch delivered in lightning speed.
Amazon has just added artist merchandise to their Amazon Music App, making it incredibly easy to shop while you stream. Apparel, artwork, accessories and all the rest will now appear on participating artists’ pages, side-by-side with their songs, albums, live streams, and music videos. Prime shipping is available on the majority of products, and the new service kicks off with items from country stars like Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Luke Combs, and Florida Georgia Line and more, plus Top 40 superstars like Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga and others.
But the best part of this news isn’t even the easy shopping experience — it’s the fact that some of this stuff isn’t available anywhere else. Exclusive collections are now available from acts like Selena Gomez, Weezer, Gwen Stefani, Metallica, Pentatonix, and Florida Georgia Line, who have brand new clothing and accessories tied in with their latest projects to offer.
“Fashion is an inseparable part of music and culture, and with the addition of merchandise to the Amazon Music app, we’re making it easier for artists to connect with their fans through our app,” said Sean McMullan, Amazon Music’s Director of Artist Product and Services. “It’s long been Amazon Music’s mission to strengthen the connection between artists and fans, and today’s launch furthers that goal by uniting streaming audio, music videos, live streams, podcasts, and now merch under one roof for the first time.”
“Since the pandemic has temporarily eradicated the merch table, we’re really excited to have developed an exclusive collection of offerings with Amazon Music to bring the merch table directly to our fans,” says Weezer. “We can’t wait to see everyone back on the road when it’s safe again to tour!”
Check it out now on the Amazon Music App, or online at the new Amazon Music Artist Merch Shop.
