The Beatles’ back catalogue to be up for streaming

London, Dec 24 (IANS) The Beatles’ music is to be made available on a range of streaming music services ahead of Christmas.

Until now, the band’s back catalogue has not been available on the likes of Spotify. But this is all about to change after an announcement on Wednesday on the band’s official Twitter page, reports mirror.co.uk.

“On December 24 at 12:01 a.m. local time – here, there and everywhere – The Beatles’ music is available for streaming worldwide via the following nine services,” the band’s statement read.

The group — made up of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr — split in April 1970, but their records, including hits like “Hey jude”, “Let it be, “Come together” and “She loves you”, are still incredibly popular.

Their music will be available to stream on streaming websites like Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play, Microsoft Groove, Napster/Rhapsody, Slacker Radio, Tidal and even Amazon’s Prime Music from Thursday.

Their songs will not, however, be available on the Pandora music service.

A statement from Spotify read: “The Beatles’ catalogue will be available on Spotify for all of our users (both free and Premium).

“Fans will be able to stream all 13 remastered studio albums, as well as four essential collections from the greatest band in modern history.”
