Adele’s manager: ‘Streaming’s the future, whether people like it or not’

Adele’s manager has backed streaming services like Spotify as the future of music, but warned the company that it may need to change its policy of insisting all albums be made available on both its free and premium tiers. “Personally, I think streaming’s the future, whether people like it or not, but I don’t believe one size necessarily fits all with streaming,” said Jonathan Dickens, speaking at the Web Summit conference in Dublin this afternoon. He was responding to a question about Taylor Swift’s back catalog being removed from Spotify earlier in the week. […] Dickens, who also manages artists and producers including London Grammar, Jamie T, Rick Rubin and Paul Epworth, was speaking as part of a panel of managers alongside Jeff Jampol, who manages The Doors and The Ramones, along with the estates of other artists. – Stuart Dredge,The Guardian
