My guess is there will be a big ad campaign around this. Might get more people interested.


The ad campaign has already begun:


Purple Spotify Billboards Suggest That Prince's Music Will Be Available on Major Streaming Service by Grammy Night http://www.billboard.com/...mmy-night




The Prince Spotify ads have been updated: http://www.brooklynvegan....y-station/



Love it! Thanx 4 posting! 😎

Spotify consistently makes losses and has borrowed a lot. Maybe only a matter of time before a bigger company buys them up.


Worth noting, profit margins for any streaming business are neglible. There's next to no money to be made, esp off the backs of smaller artists.

Forgive my ignorance, but is Spotify free to stream Prince music on your laptop?

Anyone figure out why there's no Black album? All other WB releases are up there. How disappointing.

I'm happy there are albums on there but there is just no care taken at all - it's all so haphazard.

The fact that Sign O' The Times has edits and the sound is all over the place makes it unlistenable as an album (the first track into Play is like walking into a different room). And where are the rest of the extended mixes? The Black album? You'd think with such a release fanfare then some of this would have been noticed and addressed.....especially SOTT!!!

Other Prince tracks seem to have returned to Spotify.. amongst them..

Chaka Khan - I Feel For You

Cyndi Lauper - When You Were Mine

Bangles - Manic Monday

Prince - A Case Of U (Joni Mitchell tribute album)

Prince - Good Love (Bright Lights Big City soundtrack)

..and probably many more Prince penned tracks.

This is good to see smile

"Missing are three albums from later in that period -- The Black Album, The Gold Experience and Chaos and Disorder -- which are under a different contractual arrangement, along with a couple dozen remixes, extended versions and B-sides"

I wish that there was a version of Lovesexy on Spotify with the individual tracks instead of the whole thing as 1 track. I know that Prince wanted it all as 1 track and it is an experience listening to the whole album start to finish. However, I really want to listen to Anna Stesia and I don't like having to keep rewinding to 16:32 where the song starts. First world problem, I know. But separate tracks would be nice!

Are HnR Phase 1 and 2 Tidal exclusives? From the albums missing on Spotify these two are the ones that bother me the most. The gp probably wants to listen his last records.

I find it interesting that for the possibly first time ever the most played version of 1999 is the album version, that's the one "the kids" and casual listeners are streaming.

It's a good thing. Nice observation.

How much is Tidal in the US?


I joined Tidal for $9.99/mo. Been happy with it except for the fact the don't have 3121 which was to be my next purchase. That being said I will discontinue my Tidal membership once I've purchased all the music I want for my permanent collection. Which I pretty much have except for 3121! Grrrrr

The Recording Industry Association of America is out today with an overview of the performance of the music industry during 2016. As detailed in a blog post, the music industry saw revenue of $7.7 billion during 2016, up 11.4 percent compared to the year before.

Perhaps most notably, the report states that streaming music revenue from Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube made up the majority of that revenue for the first time ever.


here's a snip

https://medium.com/@RIAA/...9b77022635

2016: A Year of Progress For Music

2016 was a year of significant progress for the American music business. Powered by 22 million subscriptions, streaming overtook all other formats, generating the majority of industry revenues for the first time. Overall retail revenues grew 11.4%.

My colleague Josh Friedlander walks through all the data in more detail here.

Agreed.

The streaming business model is a dead end, it's unsustainable and will be surprassed sooner than most people think.

Prince was absolutely right on this matter – he didn't like the idea of being forced to practically give away his work for peanuts on these platforms. Don't know the details of his Tidal deal but I'm sure he made an agreement that assured he's getting paid with real money.

[Edited 2/17/17 3:24am]

Nope. Hence why he told Tamar that live shows is where it's at. Streaming isn't going anywhere but we might get to a day where the record labels no longer exist and artists get paid directly from the streaming services. And then license their music to a publisher to handle the business side. With digital downloads and social media who needs record labels anymore? [Edited 2/18/17 9:17am]

It's understandable how people prefer streaming music--it is easy access for cheap. I suspect, however, that the services have the potential to bleed-out the talent that produces the streamers' content. Streaming services provide consumers a temporary distribution and storage of music and a chance to listen to something new for their money. However, their role today neglects development of new talent, and they pay little in terms of a living wage to the majority of talent that contract with them. It is for musicians, at best, an advertising tool of variant impact among their spectrum that I believe to be driven mainly by factors outside the domain the of the streaming services.

>

For now streaming revenues are on the rise and it's a cool scene for the companies and their subscribers. In time we'll see where this all goes in terms of sustaining new streaming content for consumers. Granted, it is nice to eliminate the middleman for musicians presenting music to consumers, but who is selling what to whom in the given dynamic? Musicians will need to eat so they can continue to create stuff just to give away to their fans and the public. My feeling is that they'll have to get busier on the ground, using their own wits, energy, and all their contacts--given the right terms-- to earn a dollar, just like our guy Prince was trying to do.

>

Everybody's got to go for theirs, though, so musicians, go get your money and go Spotify (I hope that they can fix those errant file tags) etcetera!

>

I love the musicians, tho'--support the arts!

Hi Rev, I bought 3121 on Tidal. I found things come and go... not sure why, it's almost like they change sku numbers or something and albums get hidden for a while. Also you might see something on streaming and not in the store, in that case just use the album number from the streaming url and put it in the store url. Good Luck. ~~Peace

A few years ago The Trichordist considers ways to improve on the streaming services model for their services transactions to offer better deals for all involved in the subscription scheme.

>

Why Spotify is not Netflix (But Maybe It Should Be)

"If we are to explore the digital marketplace for both streaming and transactional downloads the music business might do well to look at what the film business is actually doing in the same space. We will quickly see that Spotify is not Netflix, but maybe it should be.

>

Readers will note the film business has not bought into the faulty logic that the only way to combat internet piracy is to make every film ever made, available instantly, on an all you can eat service for $9.99 a month. Some might argue that is what Netflix is, but people making that argument are obviously not current subscribers!"

Yes--perhaps under new ownership the service will be tooled to become a vehicle better-tuned to monetize the productions of the artists and the industry that they feed.
