Taylor Swift’s Return to Streaming Reignites Feud with Katy Perry
Taylor Swift has been extremely anti-streaming and anti-Spotify… until today. Today is the same day her rival and arch nemesis Katy Perry releases her new album Witness.
Coincidence? We really don’t think so.
Swift’s music hasn’t been available to users on Spotify. In 2014, right before her album 1989 dropped, Swift spoke openly about her feelings regarding streaming.
“All I can say is that music is changing so quickly, and the landscape of the music industry itself is changing so quickly, that everything new, like Spotify, all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment. And I’m not willing to contribute my life’s work to an experiment that I don’t feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music.”
However, last night, the Instagram account TaylorNation announced that in honor of 1989 selling 10 million albums worldwide, her entire back catalog would be available.
