The Beatles have ended their boycott of digital streaming services, and are now available on all on-demand services, whether it be Spotify, Apple Music, or even Pandora.

The Beatles, who are the best selling musical act in history (178 million certified records sold), have lifted their embargo on streaming services and have become available for streaming, just in time for Christmas. The Beatles have always been wary of new technology; the CD was introduced in the early 80’s but the first Beatles CD came out in 1987, iTunes opened in 2003 but The Beatles did not sell their music there until striking a deal with Apple in 2010.

The story behind some of The Beatles’ top songs.

That’s not the case when it comes to their musical production however; they were pioneers in many areas of music. They were one of the first to write concept albums, one of the first to use compression, splicing, back masking, and firsts in printing the lyrics on the back of the album. In fact, they were one of the first acts that released a music video, and took a bold move in the 60’s by deciding not to tour anymore.
