Tool to Finally Come to Streaming Services?
Published Mar 23, 2017While music from the Beatles and Prince has hit streaming services within the past few years, Tool remain one of the largest remaining holdouts, with the band still yet to offer their music in the digital realm. But as Bloomberg reports, that could all change come the arrival of their long-awaited new record.
The publication reports that the band are in talks to make their catalogue available on streaming services in time for the release of their first album in over a decade. Private negotiations have reportedly taken place between Tool members and service providers such as Spotify and Apple Music.
Little has been said about when fans can expect a new record from the band, who last delivered 10,000 Days in 2006. In November of last year, frontman Maynard James Keenan told the Wall Street Journal that "We're working on it…Do I appear to you to be a lazy person who doesn't want to get that done?"
Keenan, Spotify and Apple Music all declined Bloomberg's requests for comment. Of course, the band also announced a North American tour, with plenty of stops in Canada. While it remains to be seen if they'll road test any new tunes, you can learn more about the trek here.
