NEW YORK, N.Y. – Fans seeking to listen to Adele’s new album won’t be able to do so on Spotify or Apple Music.
The streaming sites said Thursday that Adele’s “25” will not be available for streaming when it’s released Friday.
It’s unclear if Adele’s album will appear on Spotify or Apple Music in the future. A representative for the singer has declined to comment.
Pulling the anticipated album from the streaming platforms will force listeners to buy it digitally and at stores, driving its sales. The album is predicted to push well over 1 million copies in its debut week.
Adele’s last album, “21,” has sold more than 11 million copies in the United States since its 2011 release.
