Taylor Swift's Back Catalogue Returns to Streaming Services
Her albums have arrived on Spotify and Tidal — on the same day Katy Perry drops her new album
Published Jun 09, 2017Taylor Swift's back catalogue has finally returned to streaming services.
Back in 2014, the pop star withheld her album 1989 from streaming services like Spotify and Tidal, eventually opting to stream it on Apple Music — but only after a highly critical public letter led to some renegotiated terms. At the time, she pulled her past releases from the sites, as well.
As of today (June 9), though, Swift's five studio album (including 1989) are streaming via Spotify, Tidal, Pandora and Amazon.
According to the singer's official Instagram fan account, Taylor Nation, the decision came just in time to commemorate 1989 reaching the 10 million albums sold milestone.
Of course, the Internet is already losing its mind with speculation that the move was strategically planned to coincide with the release of Katy Perry's new album, Witness. The pair of pop stars have been feuding for years, and Swift's hit "Bad Blood" is widely believed to be aimed at Perry.
Perry, meanwhile, recently addressed the simmering feud on a recent episode of James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke," saying she is "ready for that B.S. to be done."
