Three weeks after hitting iTunes, Taylor Swift’s new album Reputation is starting to roll out on Apple Music and Spotify.
Fans first spotted the record on the sites in Australia and the Phillipines, and it is now available to stream in the UK.
Previously the pop star’s sixth album was only available as a digital download or as a physical copy. Swift announced via her Instagram that it would be available on all streaming services from midnight on 1 December.
Despite the decision to temporarily keep it off streaming services, reputation quickly became the biggest first-week sales of 2017, shifting more than 1.2 million copies in the US.
The move is a less drastic version of the one made by Adele‘s team when she released her album 25, which was not available on streaming services until seven months after its initial release.
Swift’s album was recently listed on The Independent‘s top 30 of the year. It was praised for producer Jack Antonoff’s work, along with Swift’s songwriting skills and “one of [her] greatest talents… to encapsulate those small moments, often in a new relationship, that you as a listener cannot”.
