Taylor Swift changes her tune, allows Apple Music to stream "1989"
Swift then wrote an open letter to Apple on her Tumblr page. She and her friends "Admire and respect Apple so much," she wrote. "We simply do not respect this particular call." The letter plus the publicity led Apple to change its mind and the company will now pay writers, artists, labels and producers whose music is streamed during the three month trial period. Apple Music will debut on June 30th with the launch of iOS 8.4, featuring an exclusive new single from Pharrell Williams.
Now that Apple has done what she asked for, Swift announced today via a tweet that her "1989" album will be available on Apple Music. The LP will not be exclusive to Apple. She added that this is "the first time it’s felt right in my gut to stream my album." Previously, she refused to allow rival streamer Spotify to offer "1989" since it has a free music tier supported by ads.
