When Apple Music announced its launch, the company touted that the streaming service’s first exclusive would be a track from Pharrell, “Freedom.” Zane Lowe then premiered the song at 12:30 p.m. ET in the first hour of Beats 1, Apple Music’s 24/7 radio station.

He called it the “one record that means more to us than any other” and then played “Freedom” twice in a row.

The studio version of the track has yet to appear online, but Pharrell played the song at Glastonbury last weekend and you can watch that performance below.
