Following on from the pressure over the weekend by Taylor Swift, Apple has announced that it will pay artists during the Apple Music free trial.
Apple Music launches later this month and everyone who signs up to the service will get a three month free trial to Apple’s new streaming service.
When the service was announced, it was revealed that Apple would pay the artists and music labels nothing for streaming their tracks in the first three months.
Apple has now backtracked after Taylor Swift called Apple out ion not paying the artists and now Apple’s Eddie Cue has announced in Twitter that the company has changed its mind and will pay all of the artists during the free trial period.
