Taylor Swift and Spotify are getting back together. Three years after she famously called out and removed her entire catalog from the service, the 27-year-old will reportedly make her music available again on all streaming services which also includes Pandora, Amazon and Tidal starting on Thursday, June 8 at midnight.
According to fanpage Taylor Nation, Swift returns to Spotify to celebrate her most recent album “1989” selling over 10 million copies and the RIAA’s certification for selling a total of 100 million songs. Tech Crunch added that the former country star would make her music available on both the free, ad-supported and the paid triers of Spotify.
Swift’s decision to end her bad blood with Spotify came as a huge surprise. Back in 2014, she made headlines for publicly criticizing the company, which she called “a grand experiment” that doesn’t fairly compensate artists. The singer, who’s been vocal about how music should not be free, subsequently removed all her catalog.
Shortly after, Swift got into another feud with another streaming service. She wrote an open letter to Apple, which upon the launch of its Apple Music offered three-month free trial. The company initially refused to pay royalties to artist during that period, but eventually changed its tune due to Swift’s criticism.
