AC/DC are putting more than a toe into the waters of the internet.
Long one of the holdouts in allowing their music to be used in new media, the band made one concession in 2012 when they allowed iTunes to start selling digital versions of their albums. As soon as Tuesday, they will take the next major step, adding their catalog to streaming services such as Spotify, Rdio and the new Apple Music which is set to launch.
So far, nobody from the AC/DC camp or Apple have confirmed the news but major media sources are reporting it as a done deal.
That leaves only a few major acts that have not joined the streaming revolution, foremost of which are the Beatles and Garth Brooks, two of the biggest selling artists of all time.
Apple may also have another long-time hold out set for Apple Music, which debuts tomorrow. Dr. Dre’s The Chronic is reportedly going to be available at launch marking the first time the rapper has tried streaming. He didn’t even have his music on his own Beats Music which was purchased by Apple last year.
