Taylor Swift is set to give a big snub to Apple Music when it launches officially at the end of the month, with reports emerging that the singer will not be making her current album 1989 available to the new streaming service.

Swift became the most prominent advocate of the non-Spotify model of music distribution at the end of the last year, when she removed her entire back catalogue from the streaming site just before the release of 1989. It didn’t seem to harm her sales – it has sold in excess of five million copies to date, making it the biggest selling album of 2014 and 2015 (so far).

Alexander Starovoitov, a deputy representing the right-wing LDPR party in the Russian Duma (parliament), believes that Apple is guilty of spamming youths with illegal content when it gave away U2’s recent album Songs of Innocence for free back in September 2014 to all of iTunes’ 500 million worldwide users.

U2's latest album Songs of Innocence was given away free but the marketing stunt backfired

The apology was prompted by a criticism from a Facebook user during a question and answer session. “Oops, I’m sorry about that,” said Bono. “I had this beautiful idea and we kind of got carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. Drop of megalomania, touch of generosity, dash of self-promotion and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years mightn’t be heard.”
