Are The Beatles About To Join The Streaming Music Revolution?
There are only a handful of major artists that have kept there music entirely off the streaming music services [full list here.] The Beatles lead that list, but now their are hints that may be about to change.
Over the last few days, The Beatles have been sharing hints of a "big announcement." There's a countdown video [see below] and short declarations on their official social media accounts using the hashtag #thebeatles1.
1 is the title of The Beatles successful collection of best selling singles. Released on 2000, it sold more than 30 million copies.
Fan speculation varies wildly online. But industry insiders – citing rumors earlier this year that a deal with Apple had been cut – are betting that "1" will be released to the streaming music services soon, as a way for The Beatles to test the waters or the first step in a carefully timed campaign.
