Taylor Swift’s latest album “Reputation” is currently set for a release on the 10th of November, 2017. However if you were expecting that Swift’s album would be available for streaming, you could be disappointed to learn that might not be possible, at least not for the first week, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The report claims that Swift is apparently considering delaying her album’s availability on music streaming platforms for a week, which shouldn’t really be too surprising given Swift’s star power in which physical and digital sales through mediums like iTunes could prove to be more lucrative than the royalties paid out by streaming services.

Swift had initially refused for her music to be available on streaming citing royalties as one of the reasons, but that quickly changed after Apple had agreed to pay the singer (and other musicians on its Apple Music platform) royalties during the three-month free trial period. Swift is not alone in shunning streaming services as Adele’s “25” album was also not available for streaming at launch, and it was only after more than half a year later that the singer changed her mind.

That being said there is still some hope as the report claims that music streaming services are apparently still trying to negotiate with Swift regarding her album’s availability, but we guess we’ll have to wait and see.
