Joanna Newsom fans who’ve been itching to stream her entire catalog can finally rest easy. Today, the singer-songwriter’s label, Drag City has added her two albums, 2010’s Divers and 2010’s Have One On Me, to Apple Music. The pair join Newsom’s other full-lengths, Ys from 2006 and her 2004 debut, The Milk-Eyed Mender, which were made available for streaming in recent weeks.
For Newsom, placing her full discography on Apple Music is a significant move, given her longstanding, not-so-savory views regarding streaming platforms. Previously, she called Spotify — which has yet to feature any of her LPs — “the banana of the music industry” and “a garbage system.”
“It’s set up in a way that they can just rob their artists, and most of their artists have no way to fight it because they’re contractually obligated to stay with the label for x amount of time and you can’t really opt out. It’s a garbage system,” Newsom said back in 2015.
