Thom Yorke & Nigel Godrich pull music from Spotify

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich have pulled some of their albums from Spotify. The albums of Thom Yorke (The Eraser), Atoms For Peace (AMOK) and Nigel Godrich’s band Ultraista are no longer available on the music streaming service.

In a series of tweets Nigel Godrich announced the albums have been pulled from Spotify: “Can’t do that no more man.. Small meaningless rebellion.” Godrich stated that it’s bad for new music: “The reason is that new artists get paid fuck all with this model.. It’s an equation that just doesn’t work. The music industry is being taken over by the back door.. and if we don’t try and make it fair for new music producers and artists…..then the art will suffer. Make no mistake. These are all the same old industry bods trying to get a stranglehold on the delivery system..”

Nigel’s messages were soon backed by Thom Yorke on twitter. Responding to a fan who said: “your small meaningless rebellion is only hurting your fans … a drop in the bucket really”, Yorke said: “No we’re standing up for our fellow musicians”

  • I always look forward to the music of their products. Looking forward to the SE resounding success. I love you.

  • I find it a shame they’ve taken this stance. Sure, music streaming services are still really in their infancy, and royalties do really need tweeking, but the’re really just limiting new people discovering their music which is a shame. I use Spotify almost exclusively now and love it. If anything, it saved me from buying Amok cause I thought it wasn’t that flash, but allowed me to have a good listen until they pulled it.

  • Hopefully there will be a new experience more attractive

  • So do it right. Just as there is a rebellion justice, just as a small revolution that advocate for the rights of the composer’s
