If you’re anything like us, roadies over the last few years for you has meant that cracking out a solid Taylor Swift banger in the middle of your playlist has involved a myriad of navigating between different apps and awkward silences between the stream of your favourite beats… Well that’s all set to be a thing of the past!
Taylor Swift has made a return to streaming services that aren’t Apple Music this week, with her full discography hitting Spotify and her latest album 1989 going on Tidal (where her previous albums have already been housed).
That in and of itself would be news, given that the singer made a show of pulling her music from Spotify two years ago as a protest against the service’s paltry royalty payments. But the real tea here is the timing: Katy Perry, her nemesis for the last few years, just so happened to release her new album Witness the same night the album went back on these sites.
What a coincidence, right?
The news was announced on Taylor Swift’s Instagram account with the caption, “In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 Million Albums Worldwide and the RIAA’s 100 Million Song Certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services tonight at midnight.”
In any event, the choice between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift is now in your hands.
