Apple is introducing a new way to buy music from its popular iTunes music store. It's called the iTunes Pass. For $19 music fans get the new album from their favorite band when it is released, plus videos, remixes and other exclusive content as soon as it's available.

All the material is automatically downloaded into iTunes and the subscriber gets an e-mail alert.

Depeche Mode is the first band available under this new plan.

The iTunes Pass expires in 15 weeks. But customers get to keep all the material they download
