Apple Music has partnered up with Billie Eilish to promote the streaming service's new Spatial Audio feature.

Hear sound all around. Listen to Billie's new album "Happier Than Ever" in Spatial Audio on Apple Music.
Spatial Audio is Apple Music's new feature that allows artists to release their songs in Dolby Atmos. Mixed in this new way, listeners can hear sounds come from all directions rather than just traditional stereo which plays in just left and right.
Apple originally launched Spatial Audio alongside Lossless Audio in May. The company added both features to Apple Music at no additional cost to subscribers.
Apple today announced Apple Music is bringing industry-leading sound quality to subscribers with the addition of Spatial Audio with support for Dolby Atmos. Spatial Audio gives artists the opportunity to create immersive audio experiences for their fans with true multidimensional sound and clarity. Apple Music subscribers will also be able to listen to more than 75 million songs in Lossless Audio — the way the artists created them in the studio. These new features will be available for Apple Music subscribers starting next month at no additional cost.
The feature has received mixed reviews so far, but the issues appear to be with songs that were not mixed well for the new format. Just today, John Mayer announced that he has re-released his new "Sob Rock" album in Atmos after removing it initially.
