Taylor Swift Removes All Her Albums from Spotify

Fans of Taylor Swift who rely on Spotify to stream their music are out of luck as she has removed all of her albums from the service.

The decision led Spotify to release a statement on its website to notify fans.

“We love Taylor Swift, and our more than 40 million users love her even more – nearly 16 million of them have played her songs in the last 30 days, and she’s on over 19 million playlists,” the statement read. “We hope she’ll change her mind and join us in building a new music economy that works for everyone. We believe fans should be able to listen to music wherever and whenever they want, and that artists have an absolute right to be paid for their work and protected from piracy. That’s why we pay nearly 70% of our revenue back to the music community.”

“PS – Taylor, we were both young when we first saw you, but now there’s more than 40 million of us who want you to stay, stay, stay. It’s a love story, baby, just say, Yes,” the company added.

In the meantime, check out the dates for the 1989 World Tour, which Taylor just announced.

  • Asdf

    She’s becoming so egotistical and pretentious. Sad

  • Seyfried Fan

    Who would want to listen to her boring music anyway ? i mean except despreat crazy psycho girls like her of course :)

  • sky

    this girl and her management team are something else. She is acting like a diva and she does have the voice or the talent to match that of true diva’s. Hate to bring this up but if were not for the Kanye West dis, she would not be popular.

  • Living in a box

    But you still can listen her song on youtube.What she will do? take down her song/video on youtube? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQjcJBGIFsA

    They’re right. The way music is consumed has changed, and if she’s doing this to boost album sales, it’s a huge mistake. Most people aren’t going to say oh well, I’ll just buy the album. Most people are going to find a way to download it illegally or will just stop listening to her music. I, like lots of other people, pay monthly for Spotify knowing that it gives me access to just about any artist and album I could want to listen to, any time I want. I’m pretty unlikely to pay for an album on top of that. I listen to her music sometimes, it’s a fun listen, but I think she’s going to find that most people, like me, are going to find that her music is no longer there and say, oh well, looks like I’m going to be listening to something else then.

  • Tamara Gomez

    I pay my 10.00 a month to listen to music on Spotify, I am not buying her album on top of that. If it was on Spotify, I’d have listened to it. This just makes me like her less. I don’t understand why she would take them down other than just being a greedy brat.

  • suzybel

    It’s a wonder she has any fans, after this they will be dropping like flies.

  • Justin Aniston

    Katy Perry would never do this <3

  • Dee

    Taylor is becoming old too fast, over publicizing
    Her. Getting tired of her already. She used to be my favorite.

  • Lily Trump

    I´m more disappointed by people posting their useless comments than Taylor taking down her albums..god get a life and let that woman live

  • Dee

    Talk about GREED, Taylor is worth 225 million dollars. This is more money than she can spend in a lifetime. People are going to learn to hate her for being so GREEDY.

  • Guest

    Her Record Label Big Machine is up for sails, that’s why they remove her album from Spotify, it is not her decision. I’m sure it will be back soon.

    i wish she dissapears from EARTH. HER MUSIC IS BASIC AND SUCKS.

  • Dj

    It’s moves like this that make me really rethink my opinion about a artist and lately she has been acting very snobbish her management should really think twice

  • Alan Ramirez

    I guess she wanted more money to have her albums there. I hope she changes her mind!

  • mafragias

    no she just pretends to sing.

  • mafragias

    have you even heard her sing?

  • mafragias

    I am sick and tired of people saying stuff like “she’s diva” or whatever… she can do whatever she wants cause she is young and talented and it seems she works hard to make good music. We all have to focus on the music not the Drama…. GET OVER YOURSELVES PEOPLE…. at the end , i think she made a good desicion about spotify (even though i think it’s not HER desicion) , because it’s a shitty app…

  • mafragias

    so what??? does that makes her music bad???

    Puh-lease, give me a break! Katy actually can sing, it just sounds much better when she’s standing still at concerts. :) It’s hard to sing AND dance.

  • lol

    HAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHHHH…HA….HA…HA.. =*

  • PlayNice

    Have you actually heard Katy Perry sing live acoustic versions of her songs or the Christian songs she used to sing? Katy can hit notes Taylor can only dream of hitting. Katy actually has some power to her voice. TS does not.

    At this point, I say to you people. Who the fck is KW, now?

  • mafragias

    DA, i have heard KP sing… I also rembember the time, when she pretended to sing a flute. Oh , i forgot and it was that time that she did NOT win a GRAMMY

  • Ada ŻK

    What a greedy skank…

  • Justin Aniston

    Flute? What does that have to with anything I just said? And people always have to mentition that she hasn’t won a Grammy (YET!), but always keep out the part that she has had 9 number one hits…But anyway, my point in all of this was that Katy Perry would NEVER remove her music from Spotify. I like both Katy and Taylor, so chill out with your random, cliché Internet fandom war.

  • K8QP

    For some reason I think its her producers who have decided that ! As many of you said she has plenty of money as it is,wont need more,but the company that recorded her will always say : MORE

  • mafragias

    yeah, flute. she did it in one of her concerts and that’s why i lost respect in her. about fandom wars, you started it by saying “Katy Perry would never do this”, you don’t know that, as we don’t know if she will ever win a grammy… grammy is “an accolade to recognize outstanding achievement in the music industry”..

  • Justin Aniston

    I didn’t start anything by saying that, but I have a feeling she knows marketing and knows her fan base too well, and I bet Taylor do, too. But right after I read the news that Taylor removed all her albums, I searched for PRISM on Spotify and gave her CD some re-listen. I didn’t go to iTunes and bought Taylor’s album, since I only use Spotify as my source to music. Taylor could have earned some more money if she put out her 1989 album on there as well. :) Some use Spotify, some use iTunes, some buy the CD at the store. But I have to give her some credit, too, since this give her some great PR for her 1989 album!

  • so what??? does that make her music bad???

  • NRW

    She could care less about you or anyone else in your situation. She’s just “too good” anymore.

    Spotify is more greedy look how much they pay musicians” the same musicians who finds it difficult to make a living and decide to just quit.
