Taylor Swift fans hoping to stream her new album have gotten a surprise.
FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers reports.
Taylor Swift's new album, 1989, is huge -- selling more than 700 thousand copies in its first two days on sale. But, fans hoping to hear it on Spotify are out of luck. Swift pulled not only her new single there, "Shake it Off", from the streaming service on Monday -- but, her entire catalog.
This summer, she wrote in the Wall Street Journal that artists should be paid what they're worth. While Spotify says nearly 70 percent of the monthly fee it charges goes back to the artist in royalties. Spotify has more than 40 million users and last week "Shake it Off" was its most-played song.
For now, fans have one choice when it comes to hearing 1989 -- buy it.
