Taylor Swift's '1989' Will Be On Apple Music

(Radio.com) Worry not, Apple Music subscribers, you'll get your 1989 after all. Taylor Swift tweeted on Thursday (June 25) that, after the very public deliberation between she and Apple over royalties that originally would not be paid to artists, songwriters and the like during the first three (free) months of an Apple Music user's subscription, her most recent album will indeed be available on the service.

Despite getting dragged through the mud a bit for a few days there, chalk up a win for Apple: having 1989 available for streaming puts it ahead of both TIDAL, which has the rest of the Swift discography, and Spotify, which has been left out in the cold entirely when it comes to the country-turned-pop star's material.

"After the events of this week, I've decided to put 1989 on Apple Music' and happily so," Swift tweeted.That wasn't all. She added in two additional tweets that it was not "some exclusive deal like you've seen Apple do with other artists." Instead, the deal with Apple Music was merely "the first time it's felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart." Read more including the full tweets here.
