So far, Apple Music has changed the hearts and minds of many former anti-streamers. Since the new service’s debut, Taylor Swift and Thom Yorke have switched sides, while Dr. Dre has even allowed his classic debut to stream on Apple Music. (Prince, however, is still staunchly #TeamSoundCloud and Tidal.) Now even Björk has changed her tune. Back in January, when she surprise-released her new album Vulnicura, the Icelandic goddess kept it off Spotify. “This streaming thing just does not feel right. I don’t know why, but it just seems insane,” she explained then, with the important caveat that she’d be open to having a physical copy out first “then maybe you can stream it later.” Later, it seems, is now! For the first time, Vulnicura is now streaming in full on both Spotify and Apple Music. (Sorry, Tidal.) So if you’d like to forget what it’s like to feel loved, or you just want to experience one of the best albums of the year, then what are you waiting for?
