Warner Withdraws from Streaming Services: Muse Speak Out Against It
Warner Music recently announced their decision to stop licensing their artists' tracks to free streaming services such as Spotify. One of Warner's biggest-selling artists, Muse, is speaking out against this decision. Bassist Chris Wolstenhome of Muse expressed his disdain for the idea by saying, "It's like taking your song off the radio isn't it? You're instantly taking your song away from a group of potential listeners." He also went on to explain that these kinds of initiatives are being made by big corporations, not the bands themselves. He further elaborates, "As far as bands are concerned you just want people to hear your music whichever way they can."
