We’ve been hearing a lot about indie record labels taking back the licenses for their music to be streamed on Spotify (mostly metal labels), but here is a high profile artist to add to the list: Coldplay.
While seven of the band’s albums are available on the service, Mylo Xyloto, the latest release, is not, and will not, be available. C|Net was the first to receive the information, in addition to reporting that EMI (Coldplay’s label) is “a little embarrassed” of their artists’ decision.
No reason behind the pull was given, but many are speculating that it is because of the very low payouts most artists are receiving from the streaming service.
Do you think more major artists will be pulling partial or full catalogs from Spotify (or other streaming services)?
