Taylor Swift's Music Reappears On Streaming Services After Singer Ends Boycott

The Katy Perry/Taylor Swift feud continues this week, with news that Swift has decided to make her entire back catalogue available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Tidal and other platforms - on the same day of Perry's album release for Witness.

In an announcement both on Twitter and Instagram, Swift's official fan account, "Taylor Nation", brought the good news to Swifties.

Ahead of her new album Witness dropping worldwide today (9 June 2017), Katy covered NME magazine yesterday and discussed how she thought Taylor's behaviour was "so messed up".

Online personality Tyler Oakley preferred to find a way to neutralize the situation.

But @HaleyyyEvans said: "Honestly Taylor Swift coming back to Spotify is the best thing that's happened to me all year".

The move coincided with the release on Friday of "Witness", a new album by Perry, Swift's pop industry rival with whom she has a long-running personal feud. Swift allowed Apple to stream it after the music platform made a decision to pay artists royalties during its free three-month trial. The pop star, 27, previously pulled her songs from Spotify in November 2014 when she took a stand against the streaming service's compensation plan for artists.

Some fans found the timing of Swift's return interesting.

Taylor Swift released her entire discography on Spotify. Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [her fans].

"She writes a song about me and I'm like 'OK, cool, cool, cool". But Perry told them to make sure there is some leeway in the contract since she's going on her Prismatic tour in a few months.

"It is my opinion that music should not be free", she said at the time.

To briefly recap, Swift and Perry's epic fight started sometime between 2013 and 2014 when Perry allegedly poached some backup dancers that had been performing with Swift. And Ergatoudis came out of that meeting "optimistic" that Swift would return to Spotify.
