When Will Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” Be Available On Spotify, Apple Music? We’ve Got Details!

Taylor-Swift Reputation[UPDATE 2] When will Taylor Swift's new album "Reputation" be available on Spotify, Apple Music and other music streamers? It's was a big debut week for Taylor Swift's "Reputation." We finally have the answer: this Friday 12.1.17! 

MORE DETAILS ON REPUTATION'S FRIDAY STREAMING RELEASE HERE.

Swift has long been a vocal critic of streaming services, particularly Spotify's free ad-supported tier. She is also making what is likely an ongoing calculation as to when sales have peaked.  She and her team are waiting for that moment when she can make more money from streaming royalties than she can from $15 CDs, $13.99 downloaded albums and $1.29 tracks. As we enter week three, sales show no signings of slowing down.

Educated Guesses

So the best insider guesses as to when Swift will release "Reputation" to the streamers range from Christmas, as a gift to her fans, to 6 months. Others see the album appearing on Spotify at the first of the year, after holiday and post-holiday shopping is over. Another "obvious" time would be just prior to the May launch of her summer stadium tour.

Piracy

Some believe that the continued omission of the album from music streamers will encourage piracy. “A lot of it is going to be pirated,” Spotify's Troy Carter said earlier this week. “It kind of sets the industry back a little bit. (But) Taylor is super smart. We are not mad at her for the decision she made.”

  1. It sucks cuz I don’t have iTunes on my iPhone anymore I don’t even know what happened.. but nevertheless I can’t buy it there and I don’t have a CD player to buy the cd. I REALLY want to listen to her music and I should be able to but since I don’t have a CD player or iTunes I’m not allowed. That doesn’t seem fair…. I love Taylor Swift always have always will. But PLZ put the album on Apple Music its the ONLY way I can listen.

  2. Why is there ALWAYS some idiot saying “Who cares”?
    A LOT of people care, okay?
    Taylor Swift is one of the biggest names in popular music and Spotify is one of the most well known music streaming sites in the world.
    I’m really sorry you have no interest in the world around you, but others do.
    Now, be quiet and go back to your simple minded nothingness where nobody cares about anything and leave the rest of us alone.

  3. Why is someone greedy for wanting to get paid for their work? Also, do you kiss your mother with that mouth, you stupid cunt? And I don’t even listen to Taylor Swift you misogynous cock sucker.
