iTunes Originals

One of my favorite parts of the iTunes Store for a long time was looking forward the new iTunes originals that would come out about once a month. What turned me onto these was the Ben Folds originals, which came out in August of 2005. I found a couple of others that I like, Sting/Tears for Fears/Jack Johnson/REM/etc. But for some reason, possibly a lack of interest or downloaded copies, Apple has stopped doing these. The last one that was released was The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and that was in September of last year.

What happened, and when can we expect new ones.
