Streaming music has gained some major additions over the past couple of years, including Metallica and Led Zeppelin. And tomorrow, one of the biggest musical acts of all time will officially be available for streaming, too.
The Beatles will become available on many streaming services at 12:01 am/00:01 local time on December 24. The band’s entire catalog will be available for streaming, and it’ll be available on Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play Music, Microsoft Groove, Amazon Prime Music, Rhapsody, Slacker Radio, Spotify, and Tidal.
The Beatles’ music has been available for purchase through iTunes since 2010, but no other stores have offered the music since then, and the band’s catalog isn’t available on any streaming service. The fact that they’re finally coming to streaming services is a huge deal that shows that streaming music is a legitimate, important part of the music industry. It’s also big news that The Beatles’ catalog is coming to nine major streaming services at once, giving lots of people the chance to jam out to The Beatles over the holidays.
