    It is now Day 9 of Apple’s 12 Days of Gift event, meaning the Cupertino California company has removed the Diary of a Wimpy iBook and has posted a new free item for download. Today’s gift is an EP (extended play) from the American rock band, Kings of Leon. The band is widely popular in the UK and is becoming more popular in the US, taking home 3 Grammy Awards in 2010 thanks to hits like “Use Somebody.” Today’s free EP includes some of those hits and more, which were played at Apple’s recent iTunes Festival.

    The iTunes description of the EP mentions the following:

    Comprised of three Followill brothers — Caleb (guitar), Nathan (drums), and Jared (bass) — as well as first cousin Matthew Followill (guitar), Kings of Leon formed in 2000. The Followill siblings had spent their youth traveling across America’s heartland with their evangelist father, decamping at Pentecostal churches and tent revivals for several days at a time before moving onward. When their father resigned from the church and divorced his wife in 1997, the boys relocated to Nashville and embraced the rock music (not to mention the accompanying lifestyle) they’d previously been denied. [...]

    The audio tracks on this EP are Mastered for iTunes. This EP was recorded at the iTunes Festival—a month of exclusive live performances at the legendary Roundhouse in London. The first iTunes Festival launched in 2007, bringing out a wide array of amazing music every night for an entire month. Check out more EPs like this one and go to Connecting to the iTunes Store. for more information.
    The EP includes what appear to be two audio tracks, Black Thumbnail and Sex on Fire, both of which are live performances. Bundled with the two audio tracks are two music videos of the band’s performances from the 2013 iTunes Festival of songs; Family Tree and Wait for Me.

    It should also be noted that the gift is only available until the end of the day so it’s worth grabbing even if you don’t think you’ll listen to the music right away. Also note that the downloads are typically different depending on your country or region.

    This is the first time that the US has been able to participate in Apple’s gift-giving event and thus far it’s been fairly tame. Still, it’s really hard to argue with the price tag of being free.

    If you haven’t downloaded the “12 Days of Gifts” app already, remember to get the 64.7 MB app for free from the App Store.
