Rock Band Tool in Talks for Apple Music Streaming Deal: Report

Just ahead of the release of their first album in more than a decade, rock band Tool is in talks with Apple and its rival Spotify to make their discography available on streaming services, reports Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter.

Up until now, Tool albums have not been available on streaming services. But that could change very soon, as the popularity of such services seems to be escalating. The release date of the albums is still unknown, and the band is commenting on neither media inquiries nor the streaming services.

A lot has happened in the music industry since Tool’s last album release. That was in 2006, when YouTube was just a year-old toddler and not owned by Google. Spotify didn’t exist, only Apple’s iTunes business. And Apple was gearing up for the release of the hardware that revolutionised the smartphone.

Now, YouTube is one of the most popular channels for viewing music videos, Spotify has pioneered music streaming, and Apple is playing catch-up with Apple Music. The Beatles catalog hit streaming services a couple of years ago, and Prince’s discography went online in February.

    I was without work for six months time when my former Fellow worker ultimately strongly recommended me to begin with freelancing online… That was only after I gained $5000 in my first 30 days when I really believed I really could do this for a living! Nowadays I am delightful than ever… I work from home as well as I am my own boss now that I always wanted… I see so many unhappy people around me, working the same old boring job that is sucking the life out of all of them day-after-day… Each time I see somebody similar to that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is where I started out >>>> http://flicom­.­ru/955876

    Same.
    Although being a Tool/NIN fan means that feels like that’s all we do sometimes.

  • I was paid 104000 bucks past 12 months by doing an internet based work and also I was able to do it by w­orking in my own time f­o­r several hours every day. I applied work opportunity I stumbled upon on the net and I am excited that I was in the position to make such decent cash. It’s actually newbie-friendly and I’m so blessed that I discovered out about it. Read through what I do… http://olaurl­.­com/15cng
