One of the bands that had been missing from streaming services will now be available. King Crimson’s back catalogue of studio albums will be released on streaming platforms such as Apple Music and Spotify to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
King Crimson manager David Singleton confirmed that all 13 of their studio albums will hit streaming platforms in May and on Spotify on June 10, at a press event in London over the weekend.
Singleton says (via Rolling Stone): “The reason we’ve been slow on Spotify is that, unlike apparently the whole of the rest of the industry that’s been telling us that physical is dead, we’ve had rising physical sales for probably the last 10 years. But that argument was valid for a while, and it isn’t anymore.”
He adds: “In the end, our prime function is to serve the music and make the music available, and Spotify has now definitely become one of the places that people, particularly younger people, find music.”
