Adele’s new album will not be available to stream

For weeks, the music industry has been awaiting the release of Adele’s new album, “25,” with a mixture of excitement and anxiety. The album is all but certain to be a gigantic hit, but Adele had not revealed whether she would release it on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music.

The answer is no. With less than 24 hours before the album’s release on Friday, the major digital services have been told that “25” will not be made available for streaming, according to three people with direct knowledge of the plans for the release. The album is being released by Columbia Records in the United States, and by an independent, XL Recordings, in Europe and most of the rest of the world.

This feels really strange to me. I genuinely have no device that can play a CD, I subscribe to a subscription service so I don’t want to buy a digital album when it will hit that service at some point. I am confused. You can read the full article here.
