Exclusive content is all the rage these days when it comes to music streaming services, and Amazon has some new goods of its own. The retailer announced Amazon Acoustics today, a collection of unplugged performances from a variety of artists. As you might expect, the songs are only available for purchase from Amazon or streaming from Prime Music. And yes, Prime members get them at no additional charge. In terms of the artist lineup, there are originals and covers from JJ Grey, Train, Five For Fighting, Michelle Branch, Marc Roberge of O.A.R., Surfer Blood, Deer Tick and more for 32 total tracks.

Amazon Acoustics will offer folks who prefer the company's music service an added benefit that subscribers are getting elsewhere. Spotify offers Spotify Sessions, for example, some of which are unplugged -- like Miguel's set. Of course, the likes of Tidal, Apple Music and others all have their own exclusives, looking to add a bit of extra value to the regular streaming libraries. Unplugged shows seemed to work out okay for MTV (most of which were released as full albums), so we're curious to see what Amazon's future releases offer.
