ADELE STREAMING: THE LATEST (UPDATED WITH SPOTIFY STATEMENT)

There will be no streaming of Adele’s 25 upon its release tomorrow (11/20), including via Apple Music. Will she change her mind? Perhaps, but that's a decision she’ll make at a later date.

This is said to be fundamentally about the fact that the megastar singer/songwriter believes art has value and that freemium devalues it for all artists. This not about money for her personally—she is, as you may have intuited, wealthy beyond belief. But the big streaming services have offered her huge financial incentives. 

Speaking of those services,Spotify has released a statement on the matter: 

"We love and respect Adele, as do her 24 million fans on Spotify. We hope that she will give those fans the opportunity to enjoy 25 on Spotify alongside 19 and 21 very soon."
