As you may know Apple are in the process of closing down iTunes Music and moving all of their music over to their streaming service. As of today it looks like Apple have removed all the data relating to iTunes Music from their Link Maker service making it much harder to include the information in posts.
So, after 1 September, 2019 no new links to iTunes will be added to posts on this site. This means that links to purchase the song featured in a post will no longer include links to iTunes, also any new artists added to the site will not have artist links added to the list of where you can follow the artist. The links that have already been added to the site will remain while they still work. When those links stop working they will slowly be removed, which will take a while as there are over 400 artists with iTunes links.
Links to music that is available on Bandcamp will remain and will still be added to posts.
As most streaming services do not pay artists anywhere near the amount that they deserve I will not be including links to the popular streaming services. Using payment figures that have been published by a few artists, if you play a 3 minute song continuously for a whole month, with no pauses between plays, then the artist gets paid less than $1, the rest of your monthly payment goes to the streaming company.
As previously I will be including links to artist’s websites and social media where they can promote whatever services that they wish.
I apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause anyone.
