Taylor Swift Agrees To Put '1989' On Apple Music

Now that APPLE MUSIC has agreed to pay the creative community royalties on music used during its three-month free subscription offer (NET NEWS, 6/22), TAYLOR SWIFT took to TWITTER to announce that her latest album, "1989," will be available on APPLE MUSIC.
"After the events of this week, I've decided to put '1989' on APPLE MUSIC ... and happily so," she tweeted earlier today, following that three minutes later with, "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."
Last week, SWIFT publicly refused to give APPLE MUSIC the album because the original terms of its three-month free trial held back royalties for any music streamed during that time. APPLE quickly reversed itself, agreeing to pay artists, record labels, and publishers for streams during the trial period.
Consequently, APPLE MUSIC will be the first streaming app to offer "1989."
