The new iPad commercial song
Update 10/2/2010: Apple released a new version of the iPad ad, titled “iPad is electric” and it features the same piano song playing in the commercial. Read on to hear and download the song.
Apple just released a new iPad commercial called “iPad is Delicious” that features the text “iPad is…” followed by images of someone browsing a pictured recipe book, playing games, reading books, writing on a virtual chalkboard, etc, the video is posted above if you haven’t seen it yet.
Playing in the background is a piano song with fingers snapping to a gradually increasing energy level and soon come handclaps, a bass line, and the whole shebang… of course since it’s an Apple commercial this song is about to get very popular and two people have already asked me what the song is.
What’s the name of the song in the new iPad commercial?
The song is ‘Never Stop’ by Chilly Gonzales, from an upcoming album titled “Ivory Tower” that will be available on September 14. There are actually two versions of this song available, a ‘rap mix’ and the ‘original mix’ which is an instrumental version.
Where can I get the song?
You can download the Never Stop EP on iTunes for $3 which has three versions of the song.
You can also order the full album now directly through the record label for $9 and the album comes as an MP3 download.
The record label also offers to download the “Never Stop (Rap Mix)” here for free at their website.
A quick note: If you like the song used in the iPad commercial you should buy the full album, it includes both versions of “Never Stop” and the other songs are just as good, providing a solid mix of funky piano riffs, catchy beats, smooth instrumentals, and electronic goodness.
Can I listen to the full song online?
