Apple Shares Trailer for Docuseries '1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything' Coming to Apple TV+ May 21

Apple has shared the trailer for its upcoming docuseries "1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything," which premieres May 21 on the Apple TV+ streaming service.


Hailing from Universal Music Group's Mercury Studios and On The Corner Films, the eight-part series announced last month is described as an immersive docuseries that will explore the musicians and soundtracks that shaped the culture and politics of 1971.

In a tumultuous era, 1971 was a year of musical innovation and rebirth fueled by the political and cultural upheaval of the time. Stars reached new heights, fresh talent exploded onto the screen, and boundaries expanded like never before.

The docuseries will provide a closer look at the most iconic artists and songs that we still listen to 50 years later, including The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, The Who, Joni Mitchell, Lou Reed, and more, according to Apple.

"'1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything,' will show how the musical icons of the time were influenced by the changing tides of history; and, in turn, how they used their music to inspire hope, change and the culture around them," says Apple.

'71 is definitely one of the more significant years, but the "year music changed everything?"

Come on, you could cite nearly any year from 1963 onward for that and make a fairly compelling documentary about it.

Perfect. Every day one gets reminded of sound and music. ?

Soon two weeks ago I managed to get some hearing loss on high frequencies on my left ear after listening to seemingly calm ”sleeping music” (albeit the sweeping synth in the background do go into the high frequencies at times) during the night in order to mask my tinnitus. So now music in the high frequencies sound a little different compared to what I'm used to...

So set a timer kids and/or let the ear rest for a couple of days as soon as the ears start to feel ”hallow” or ”full”!

I thought I was careful, but obviously not enough. :(

But happy to see this documentary anyway at some stage. :)

Edit:
Forgot to add I also got a low in volume, but high pitched tinnitus. Really devestated about my situation. ?
