So, here’s the deal. ’1989′, the 25-year-old’s fifth studio album, is not available on any streaming service, with the singer pulling ALL of her music from Spotify last year.

At the time, she exclusively told Yahoo: “Music is changing so quickly, and the landscape of the music industry itself is changing so quickly, that everything new, like Spotify, all feels to me a bit like a grand experiment.

“And I’m not willing to contribute my life’s work to an experiment that I don’t feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music. And I just don’t agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free.”

Her back catalogue, minus her latest offering, is available on services such as Rdio and Tidal, which require users to pay for a subscription.

A rep for Swifty’s label Big Machine Records and an Apple rep have now told Buzzfeed that ’1989′ will not be available when Apple Music launches, although her previous albums will be.

Sorry, everyone.

The Big Machine rep continued on to say that there are no plans to release the album on any streaming service in the near future, meaning fans will have to pay actual money to buy the album.

According to Bloomberg, Apple Inc. asked artists for exclusive deals in a big to promote the revamped Beats Music, asking Tay and others about a potential partnership.

They were hoping that exclusives would entice music lovers to pay for subscriptions.
