Agreed! Although I am not a fan or, nor ever heard, Ms. Swift, this may have been a way of introducing me to her music… guess not. Why would you want to alienate your fans? (Of course, I really doubt many will even notice…)
I love streaming music and I’m an avid user of Spotify for this purpose. I was pretty delighted when I saw that Taylor Swift’s new album “Red” was available for listening when I opened up the app. I listened to the whole album, and I gotta tell ya…it’s pretty damn good. But then something happened, it disappeared. And then it came back. Then went away again.
Here’s what Billboard reported on the subject:
Red is not likely to be available at subscription services until Swift’s next album is released, according to a source familiar with the label’s strategy with her previous releases. Instead, the focus for Red is a mountain of retail campaigns and promotions at both well-known CD sellers and non-traditional retailers.
Well that’s just flat out stupid, Ms. Swift…
