Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ album to stream on Apple Music


Taylor Swift has tweeted that she intends to make her best-selling album “1989” available on Apple Music. Swift noted in follow-up tweets that the availability of “1989” would not be exclusive to Apple Music, and the singer-songwriter personally thanked Apple for its “change of heart.” Swift’s criticism of Apple’s stance on not paying royalties during the music service’s free trial period was apparently the tide-shifting tweet needed to change the company’s stance on the subject. Since then, it’s been reported that Apple has struck a deal with some indie publishers, and that the company will pay 0.2 cents per song stream during the free trial.
