LONDON — The Beatles are set to enter the streaming era in time for Christmas.
The band’s website Beatles.com announced that the Fab Four’s songs will be available starting on Dec. 24 at 12:01 a.m. local time on nine different streaming music services.
You’ll find the songs on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal, Amazon Prime, Slacker, Groove, Rhapsody and Deezer.
Competing Internet radio service Pandora was not listed as a streaming partner.
The Beatles released a string of iconic albums in the 1960s that influenced generations of younger musicians. Many Beatles songs hit #1 on the music charts and the band has been awarded seven Grammys.
The Beatles have long been digital holdouts — the group’s music first arrived for purchase on iTunes in 2010, many years after most popular acts had agreed to put their tracks on the Apple platform.AlertMe
