AC/DC will certainly be available on Apple Music, ending its streaming service holdout


The New York Times reports that AC/DC’s magazine of music will certainly be offered on Apple Music starting on launch day tomorrow. In addition to Apple Music, the band’s music will certainly also be readily available on services such as Spotify and Rdio starting as early as Tuesday. AC/DC to this day has actually never ever offered its music on streaming services and just signed up with iTunes 3 years ago in late-2012.

Earlier toady, it was announced that Dr. Dre’s classic cd The Chronic will be offered exclusively by means of Apple Music, a digital very first for the hip-hop record. Taylor Swift’s popular 1989 record will likewise be readily available exclusively on Apple Music after much back and forth in between the 2 celebrations. Swift was distressed with Apple’s choice to not pay artists during the free trial and the company reacted by reversing that policy.


AC/DC has actually long been a holdout when it concerns the digital world. At the launch of iTunes, the band would not provide its music via the service because it felt that music must be eaten as albums instead of individual songs. It continues to be to be seen if other notoriously anti-digital acts such as The Beatles will certainly ever be available on Apple music.

Apple Music will certainly launch with iOS 8.4 and updates to iTunes tomorrow at 8 AM PT while Beats 1 will certainly start relaying at 9 AM PT.
