Taylor Swift confirmed on Twitter that her latest album “1989” will be on Apple Music.
“After the events of this week, I’ve decided to put 1989 on Apple Music … and happily so,” she said on Twitter. “This is the first time it’s felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart.”
She also noted that this is not an “exclusive” deal like the ones Apple has with other artists, such as Pharrell Williams.
The news provides closure to recent events between her and Apple.
On June 21, the music artist penned an open letter to Apple, explaining that she would withhold “1989” from Apple’s upcoming service in protest of its decision not to pay royalties for music streamed during its three-month free trial period. Later that day, Apple responded to Swift’s concerns and agreed to reverse its policy of not paying artists for their content.
“I am elated and relieved. Thank you for your words of support today. They listened to us,” she tweeted when the news broke.
Apple Music will launch on June 30.
This is simply the first time it's felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart.
