According to Mashable,
Spotify has announced a new deal that includes the provision that some new albums will only be available to paying subscribers for the first two weeks. The deal is with Universal Music Group and includes a two week provision. It is unclear if other labels will get the same deal. Universal has some of the biggest acts in music including Mary J. Blige, Lil Wayne, Katy Perry and Maroon 5.
I don’t have Spotify, but clearly streaming is changing the game.
