Atoms For Peace Pull Out Of Spotify In Protest
The two took to Twitter to discuss what they called a "small meaningless rebellion," writing that they removed their catalogues, which also will include Yorke's 2006 solo album, The Eraser and Godrich's own band, Ultraísta (though Radiohead albums are still currently available to stream), as a way to support new artists.
Godrich let his followers know that Spotify is not good for new artists, sharing his opinion in multiple tweets through the night. "New artists get paid f*** all with this model.. It's an equation that just doesn't work," he wrote.
Later adding, "The music industry is being taken over by the back door.. and if we don't try and make it fair for new music producers and artists… then the art will suffer. Make no mistake. These are all the same old industry bods trying to get a stranglehold on the delivery system."
Yorke later joined in, letting fans know that when they listen to new music, those artists are seeing very little revenue in comparison to those who have business connections to the site. more on this story
