Adele's new album won't be able to do so on Spotify, Apple Music
or Deezer. The streaming sites said Adele's "25" will not immediately be available for streaming. The album was released Friday.
Apple Inc confirmed "25," released on Friday, will not be available to stream on Apple Music. It did say in a statement that Adele's latest single "Hello
" will continue being available for streaming, and that it was "thrilled to offer" the album to buy on its online store iTunes.
Spotify also confirmed that its followers would not have access to the new album: "We love and respect Adele, as do her 24 million fans on Spotify. We hope that she will give those fans the opportunity to enjoy '25' on Spotify alongside '19' and '21' very soon," the company said in a statement.
It's unclear whether Adele's album will appear on Spotify or Apple Music
in the future. A representative for the British singer declined to comment.
Pulling the highly anticipated album from the streaming platforms will force listeners to buy it digitally and at stores, driving its sales. The album is predicted to push well over 1 million copies in its debut week.
Adele's last album, "21," has sold more than 11 million copies in the U.S. since its 2011 release.
