From Fast Company:
Okay, it's finally safe to say it: The era of streaming music is here. If dwindling album sales and the slow-but-steady growth of music-subscription revenue weren't enough evidence, consider this new milestone: Beatles albums will be on the major streaming services from December 24.
Starting tomorrow, the original 13 albums released by The Beatles and a few post-1970 compilations will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer, Rhapsody, and several other music subscription services in the United States and around the world.
"The Beatles needed to be on all streaming services if they were to reach out to a new generation of music fans," says Giles Martin, son of original Beatles producer George Martin, who oversees the remastering of the Beatles' catalog for new formats. "Music streaming is the way most music lovers now enjoy their favorite songs."
