Pop star Taylor Swift is returning the entire back catalog of her music to the masses by streaming all her songs on all platforms again. It's been three years since the music has been streamed on most services.
Her five albums will be available on Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, Amazon, and other platforms, Fox News reported. They will include the Grammy-winning "1989," according to a statement from Taylor Nation, her official Instagram fan account.
"In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 million albums worldwide and the RIAA's 100 Million Song Certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services at midnight (Friday)," the statement read.
After the release of "1989" in 2014, Swift removed her music from Spotify and other services. Only Apple Music was allowed to stream the music when it decided to pay royalties to artists during a free three-month trial.
"Important, rare things are valuable," she said at the time, according to Us Weekly. "Valuable things should be paid for."
While celebration of "1989" was mentioned as a reason for the 27-year-old singer streaming her songs on all platforms again, it also comes at a time when rival Katy Perry, 32, is promoting her new album, "Witness."
The two pop stars have been feuding for years, and Perry doesn't seem to be letting down, claiming last month on Carpool Karaoke that Swift "started it, and it's time for her to finish it," NME.com noted.
Swift, however, might want to end the dispute according to a Swift insider who told Us: "She honestly wants no part of this. She doesn't want to engage."
In the meantime, Swift fans can enjoy the sounds of such hits as "Shake It Off" and "We Are Never Getting Back Together."
