Adele‘s new album, 25, will not immediately be made available on music streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music.

’25’ Won’t Be On Spotify

When those eager to get their first listen of 25 took to Spotify Saturday morning, they were met with a disappointing message: “The artist or their representatives have decided not to release this album on Spotify just yet. We’re working on it and hope we can change their minds soon.”

While 25‘s leading single “Hello” will continue to stream on Spotify, the rest of the tracks are unavailable – though Spotify hopes to change that in the near future.

“We love and respect Adele, as do her 24 million fans on Spotify,” a spokesperson for Spotify told Entertainment Weekly. “We hope that she will give those fans the opportunity to enjoy 25 on Spotify alongside 19 and 21 very soon.”

Apple, which is selling 25 via iTunes, has also released a statement explaining the limited streaming options available to their subscribers: “[Adele’s] soulful new single, ‘Hello,’ is available to stream on Apple Music along with her entire catalog and her revealing interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1.”

It’s expected that digital download iTunes purchases will hit around 1 million units this week. Columbia Records, predicting large CD sales, has reportedly shipped nearly 4 million copies to stores. It’s believed that Adele’s 25 could sell 2.5 million copies in its first week, breaking the current record.

As one industry source told Billboard magazine, “Adele arguably needs streaming services less than any previous holdouts. She could release her album on cassette only and it would still be the biggest selling album of the year.”
