Back with a Bang: Taylor Is Putting All Her Album on Streaming Services Again

Taylor Swift has decided to make her albums available on all music streaming services tonight such as Google Play, Spotify, and Amazon. She pulled her back catalog from Spotify three years ago. The news was confirmed by Taylor Swifts management team via Twitter. They said the decision to make Swift’s catalog available was based on the celebration of 1989, selling more than 10 million copies worldwide.

Before this move, however, the pop star had decided to yank the albums including 2012’s Red and breakout hit Fearless from Spotify prior to the release of her latest album 1989 in 2014.

Taylor Swift justified her actions by saying that streaming services like Spotify didn’t compensate artists fairly. “All I can say is that music is changing so quickly, and the landscape of the music industry itself is changing so quickly, that everything new, like Spotify, all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment,”  she said in 2014. “I’m not willing to contribute my life’s work to an experiment that I don’t feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music.”

It seems Taylor Swift has a particular issue with Spotify’s free tier. Since she decided to put her records on Jay–Z’s Tides as well as on Apple Music. The pop star declared that she would be putting 1989 on Apple Music in 2015, a year after its release, marking a particularly big milestone for a service that was still a fledgling competitor to Spotify at the time.

Initially Swift wasn’t pleased with Apple’s free three-month trial which under original terms would withhold royalties for artists whose songs were played by non-paying customers. Since the star voiced her concerns the company quickly decided to change the deal and agreed to pay royalties to artists whose song was played by any user. Probably because of Taylor Swift’s mega-star status and threats to withhold her million-selling album unless changes were made.

Now it seems Swift has settled her issues with Spotify and other streaming services. The reason could be the changes in the landscape of industry since three years ago she removed her album or it could be that she wants to ensure that all her potential fans can hear her old music. The good news is that her entire back catalog will be available from now on your choice of streaming service.
