The Beatles are set to release their back catalogue on streaming sites including Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal for the first time from Christmas Eve, the band’s website said Wednesday.
The deal will see classic albums by the Fab Four such as “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Revolver” being made available on a total of nine streaming services.
“On December 24 at 12:01 am local time — here, there and everywhere — The Beatles’ music is available for streaming worldwide,” an announcement on the band’s website said. “Happy Crimble (Christmas), with love from us to you.”
The Beatles were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed groups of all time, releasing 13 studio albums before breaking up in 1970. Their back catalogue is one of the best selling in the world.
The announcement means that fans will be able to listen to the band’s songs on Spotify, Apple Music, Slacker, Tidal, Groove, Rhapsody, Deezer, Google Play and Amazon Prime.
