YouTube is working with Universal Music Group to remaster some of the most iconic music videos of all time, to ensure current and future generations will get to enjoy these classics.
Starting today, exclusively on YouTube, you’ll find more than 100 music videos in the highest available video and audio quality, including titles from Billy Idol, Beastie Boys, Boyz II Men, George Strait, Janet Jackson, Kiss, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, Lionel Richie, Maroon 5, Meat Loaf, No Doubt/Gwen Stefani, Smokey Robinson, The Killers, Tom Petty and more! And this is just the beginning.
YouTube and Universal Music Group are planning to fully upgrade nearly 1,000 music videos, painstakingly remastering some of the most important works in the history of the format to the highest possible standards. Each week over the next year, Youtube will add more titles, with all 1,000 titles expected to be available before the end of 2020.
The new videos will replace the original versions on both YouTube and within YouTube Music, while retaining the same url, view-counts and “likes.”
