Swift to Go, hold the streaming

Big Machine Media, Taylor Swift's record label, have confirmed that her new album 'Red'  will not initially available on streaming services. Label boss Scott Borchetta told Billboard "I personally struggle with that model - and I don't think that it should be free. We've spoken with the services, and spoken with Spotify in particular ... We just haven't hit on the right model that works for us. I don't have thousands and thousands of albums and hundreds and hundreds of artists, I have a finite artist roster and finite number of releases" and he  told Rolling Stone magazine "We're not putting the brand new releases on Spotify. Why shouldn't we learn from the movie business? They have theatrical releases, cable releases. There are certain tiers. If we just throw out everything we have, we're done". The CD album will also be available for $13 in the USA when ordering a pizza.from Papa John's.
