spotify-logoGood news for UK Spotify Premium members: Alicia Keys will be releasing her latest album “The Element of Freedom” for streaming purposes early on Monday, December 7th. This puts the stream only option a full week before it is available via traditional physical discs (December 14th). For a world that is so hell bent on keeping the media world in the past and dragging their feet with the whole move to digital, seeing someone as famous as Alicia Keys actually taking the time to negotiate the needed deals and shake the right hands so that the consumers and her fans can actually come out on top is nice change. I only hope more artists (and movie studios — some day when hell freezes over) will embrace technology so that we all can benefit.
