Costing $24.99 per month, music lovers will be able to get access to an album picked by the Amazon Music Team. They will then say, “Start or grow an enviable collection with some of the greatest albums ever”. 

This album will include classics from the likes of Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin.
