Apple has pushed back the release of iTunes 11 by a month to November, according to The Hollywood Reporter, saying they wanted to "get it right." The company didn't offer more specific reasons for the delay. "The new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we wanted to take a little extra time to get it right," Apple said in a statement. "We look forward to releasing this new version of iTunes with its dramatically simpler and cleaner interface, and seamless integration with iCloud before the end of November." The new iTunes software looks to better integrate Facebook sharing and iCloud synchronization, along with an improved user interface. iTunes' latest quarterly revenue totaled $2.3 billion, up from $1.7 billion a year ago.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
