The saga of Taylor Swift and Apple music just took another turn. Taylor Swift’s fans who are planning on subscribing to Apple Music will be very happy. The singer has now decided to reverse her position and will allow Apple to stream her “1989” album.
Swift had refused to allow Apple to offer songs from the album. It was in protest against Apple’s decision not to pay artists for songs streamed during consumers’ three month free trial periods.
Swift wrote an open letter to Apple on her Tumblr page. She said that she and her friends “Admire and respect Apple so much,” and that “We simply do not respect this particular call.” This letter led Apple to change its mind and the company will now pay writers, artists, labels and producers when music is streamed during the three month trial period. So it looks like everybody wins now. Apple Music will debut on June 30th with the launch of iOS 8.4.
Since Apple has changed their tune, Swift announced via a tweet that her “1989” album will be available on Apple Music. The LP will not be exclusive to Apple though. She said that this is “the first time it’s felt right in my gut to stream my album.” Her fans should be very happy.
