Adele’s ’25’ Will Not Be Streaming Online

First, she made flip phones cool again. Now, Adele is getting you to buy actual CDs.

The “Hello” songstress, whose comeback to the music scene is already striking fear into the hearts of all her contemporaries, is said to have rejected the opportunity to make her upcoming album available for streaming online. The New York Times is reporting that Adele’s 25, which is due out on Friday despite leaking online earlier this week, will not be made available on major streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.

The highly anticipated record is being released by Columbia Records in the United States. Independent label XL Recordings is responsible for distribution in Europe and most of the rest of the world.

As previously reported, 3.6 million copies of 25 have already been shipped to the U.S. and Adele is expected to have the biggest-selling opening week in Nielsen SoundScan history.

In other words, it’s time we break out that Discman because the world have some serious crying listening to do.
