Vintage Label and Packaging Design by Glenn Wolk for Arrow Shirts

Taylor Swift’s label hits back at Spotify by disclosing streaming royalties

The war of words continues between music streaming service Spotify and powerful pop icon Taylor Swift. After Swift removed her entire catalog from the streaming service last week, Spotify boss Daniel Ek said that she, along with other mainstream artists, was on track to earn over $ 6 million in royalties this year.

A Spotify spokesperson told Time that Swift had been paid a total of $ 2 million over the last 12 months for the global streaming of her songs, but Borchetta still maintains that Spotify is a blight on the music industry. “The…

Warner will also earn money if a song from its catalog is cut up and spliced into mashups on the site, according to The Wall Street Journal, where news of today’s deal was first reported.

Warner was allegedly hesitant to sign any pact with SoundCloud until the company promised to deliver a premium subscription offering to consumers sometime in the first half of 2015. The free, ad-supported service that millions of consumers use every month will remain available, though we don’t yet know…
