Spotify Agrees Limited Free Play

Spotify has inked a long-term licensing deal for songs from record label giant Vivendi’s Universal Music Group for limited free play on some new albums.

Universal artists including Taylor Swift will be able to offer new albums to paid subscribers only for two weeks, with singles available on the free service, the companies said.

Spotify, in turn, can get a break on royalties if it hits certain targets, including some tied to new paying subscribers.
