May 21 will see the first album, RadioHead's OK Computer, showcased with the album, music videos, and a special Apple Music Radio show also called Essentials Anniversaries with DJ Matt Wilkinson.

From Apple:

Essentials Albums are the ones you come home to, the ones you swear by. They're classics and game-changers - records that've defined eras, careers, movements, and moments in time. This is the place on Apple Music where we celebrate essentials as they approach milestone anniversaries, with exclusive artist interviews, live events, and extended editors' notes.

The report says that Apple's Essentials Anniversaries is still rolling out worldwide. Apple this week also announced that it would be streaming new concerts on Apple Music, starting with Harry Styles' 'One Night Only in New York' on Friday.
