To Apple, Love Taylor June 21, 2015 on Tumblr


Apple Changes Tune After Swift Speaks Out

Hours after the pop star criticised the tech company, Apple agrees to pay artists during a free trial of its streaming service.


Apple says it is bowing to concerns raised by Taylor Swift and will pay royalties to artists during a three-month free trial period for the service.

Swift had refused to put her hit album 1989 on Apple's new music streaming service - saying "it is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing".

The pop star joined independent labels in criticising the US firm's plans not to pay royalties during the free trial period.

The 25-year-old said it would hurt young artists trying to break into the music industry, and called the decision "shocking" and "disappointing".

"We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation," she wrote in a blog post entitled "To Apple, Love Taylor" on tumblr.

To Apple, Love Taylor



I write this to explain why I’ll be holding back my album, 1989, from the new streaming service, Apple Music. I feel this deserves an explanation because Apple has been and will continue to be one of my best partners in selling music and creating ways for me to connect with my fans. I respect the company and the truly ingenious minds that have created a legacy based on innovation and pushing the right boundaries.

I’m sure you are aware that Apple Music will be offering a free 3 month trial to anyone who signs up for the service. I’m not sure you know that Apple Music will not be paying writers, producers, or artists for those three months. I find it to be shocking, disappointing, and completely unlike this historically progressive and generous company.
