Spotify Will Now Let Indie Labels Put Albums Behind A Paywall
21 April 2017, 03:10 | Austin Hogan
Spotify lets thousands of indie labels limit free streaming
"The agreement is structured to reflect and promote the value of Merlin's collective offering of its members' repertoire, while offering improved marketing and advertising opportunities and enhanced access to data", explained Merlin.
Users of Spotify's free service may soon find that they can't listen to some new albums released by independent labels until two weeks after the release date. As with Spotify's deal with Universal Music Groupearlier this month, Merlin's member labels can also choose to make high-profile releases exclusive to Spotify Premium for a limited window.
The agreement with Merlin just leaves Spotify with two long-term recorded music licensing deals left to negotiate: one with Sony Music Entertainment, and the other with Warner Music Group. Independent artists will now have the same right.
Charles Caldas, Merlin chief executive, said: 'Merlin was a launch partner to Spotify back in 2008, and our partnership has thrived ever since.
Saints to open at Minnesota on MNF
Of course, you can say this game will have even more meaning if Adrian Peterson were to sign with the team. The NFL will release the complete 2017 schedule Thursday night on the NFL Network starting at 7 p.m.
Martin Mills, Merlin chairman, added: 'I'm delighted that Merlin has reached this new agreement with Spotify.
Spotify has already been streaming artists from Merlin's roster of labels for nearly a decade, but now they've signed a new deal that will allow Merlin's labels to limit new albums to Spotify's $10 monthly subscription service for up to two weeks, though specific singles may still be made available across the free ad-supported tier.
That issue isn't likely to be dealt with in the details of Merlin's licensing deal, but it will be to the fore in the way Merlin's members work with Spotify in the months and years to come. Next stop: Sony and Warner?
