Tay Tay's exclusive - and predictable - deal with Apple Music

15 Dec 2015

Apple has inked a deal with Taylor Swift that will see users of Apple Music have access to the singer’s 1989 World Tour LIVE concert movie.

The footage was filmed at the Sydney leg of Swift’s tour at the end of November.

Directed by Jonas Akerlund, the film captures Taylor’s entire performance from Sydney with never before seen footage filmed backstage and during rehearsals with surprise musical and special guests that appeared on the 1989 World Tour. 

The film will be made available exclusively to Apple Music users from Sunday, 20 December, across Apple devices.

Apple users are still able to sign up for a three month free trial of Apple Music, Apple’s answer to music streaming. Apple Music is the only streaming service where people can stream Swift’s full catelogue of albums and songs, after she pulled her entire back catalogue from Spotify and other such streaming services in November 2014.

Upon release of Apple Music, Swift penned a letter to Apple stating she wouldn't be making her music available on the service because of the three-month trial that would see artists not being paid royalties. In response, Apple quickly relented, announcing it would in fact pay artists during the trial period.
