Are the music previews gone? The 60- or 90-second clips on iTunes?

I’m interested in buying some tracks off this album.

But when I try to preview the song to listen to the first 60 or 90 seconds of it, as was previously possible, now it seems to require an Apple Music subscription.

Are the 60- and/or 90-second music previews no longer accessible unless one has an Apple Music subscription?

I just tried another, more mainstream artist and got the same feces. Can someone confirm that those 60- and/or 90-second clips of songs are completely inaccessible to those without an Apple Music subscription?

If this is so, then I’ll be using my Firefox add-on to capture .mp3 and/or .mp4 versions of songs/music videos via youTube from now on. iTunes can go to Hell.

I found out how to hear the previews, at least on iOS. One has to use the iTunes Store app instead of the Music app.

Whew! What a relief!
That's how I've done since way back.
When I still got the "radio stations" in the music app, I checked songs out and added to the wish list. But since I don't subscribe to Apple Music, no radio stations.
