Adele’s new album 25 won’t be on Spotify or Apple Music
ADELE’s new album “25” comes out today . . . and if you want to hear it, you’re going to have to buy it. Because she’s not putting it on streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music.
Adele was already going to sell several bajillion copies of “25”, and this will only help. Although it’s not necessarily just a financial decision. Sources say Adele is on board with Taylor Swift’s opinion that streaming services don’t pay artists enough.
Spotify is taking it in stride though. They released a statement saying, quote, “We love and respect Adele, as do her 24 million fans on Spotify. We hope that she will give those fans the opportunity to enjoy ’25’ on Spotify alongside ’19’and ’21’ very soon.”
(Of course, if you really want to hear it without buying it, all you have to do is wait for someone to put it on YouTube . . . which has probably already happened. But you didn’t hear that from me.)
Also, Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC: Matthew McConaughey hosts “Saturday Night Live” and Adele performs.
