Taylor Swift has reversed her decision not to stream her latest album ‘1989’, announcing that upcoming streaming service Apple Music have acquired the record.
Apple recently made a U-turn on their royalty scheme following criticism over the policy of not paying musicians, producers, songwriters or rights holders during its three-month free trial. The company changed their mind after Swift publicly criticised them, and now the singer has done likewise.
Swift previously pulled her ‘1989’ album from streaming services like Spotify because of the poor revenue it makes for musicians. Earlier today (June 25) though, Swift stated that it “felt right in my gut” to team up with Apple Music.
Taylor Swift wrote: “After the events of this week, I’ve decided to put 1989 on Apple Music…and happily so… In case you’re wondering if this is some exclusive deal like you’ve seen Apple do with other artists, it’s not… This is simply the first time it’s felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart.”
