Although singer Adele has had hesitations about making her music available via streaming services, her album 25 is set to hit Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Prime and Google Play at midnight this Thursday. While “Hello”, “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” and “When We Were Young” have been available, this is the first time the full album will be available to stream since it was released in November 2015.
“I know that streaming music is the future, but it’s not the only way to consume music,” Adele told TIME in December. “I can’t pledge allegiance to something that I don’t know how I feel about yet. I’m proud of my decision. I would have been proud even if the album flopped. I would have been proud because I stuck to my guns, and I think it’s really important as an artist that you do that.”
Radiohead was also against putting their catalog up on Spotify, but they decided to add to their playlist their missing albums, including their newest work, Moon Shaped Pool. The group opted to provide their music to Apple Music and Tidal since they don’t have freemium platforms available.
Kanye West had vowed to keep his Life of Pablo on Jay Z’s Tidal service, but that album is also currently available on Spotify.
