McCartney Say’s “No More Streaming”
McCartney has pulled the plug on streaming his music. You can't really blame a guy who saw his music sold to someone else several years back.
Universal and Concord Music Groups have issued an order saying that all Wings and Paul McCartney solo albums are to be pulled from the digital shelves of Spotify, MOG, Rdio.
The development — coincides with the arrangement between McCartney and iTunes, where he recently offered a free stream of a concert promoting his new album ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ —
A representative for Rhapsody admitted they were “shocked” by the pull order, saying, “ members have enjoyed streaming Mr. McCartney’s music for more than four years and are sure to be very disappointed to find that it has been restricted…Rhapsody has generated significant revenue for Mr. McCartney, his label and his publisher over the years, and has provided a compelling alternative to piracy.”
