Instagram has become an important tool for artists looking to build awareness through social media. The platform has now dived straight into music by starting a new @Music channel.

So, is this just a music themed Instagram account?

Basically, yes. But each photo includes editorial in the caption. So far Instagram Music has featured Questlove, Tricot, and Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear.

Instagram says they will also feature music photographers, album art designers, instrument makers, and fans.

They’re also pushing the content to their official blog.
