Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Apple launched its iTunes Radio service last year offering radio-like streaming stations, but not fully on-demand music.

The company will be watching the market closely in 2014 though: figures announced earlier this month by Nielsen and Billboard revealed that while US digital music track sales fell 6% to 1.3bn units in 2013, while song streams rose 32% to 118.1bn.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Apple launched its iTunes Radio service last year offering radio-like streaming stations, but not fully on-demand music.

The company will be watching the market closely in 2014 though: figures announced earlier this month by Nielsen and Billboard revealed that while US digital music track sales fell 6% to 1.3bn units in 2013, while song streams rose 32% to 118.1bn.

The company will be watching the market closely in 2014 though: figures announced earlier this month by Nielsen and Billboard revealed that while US digital music track sales fell 6% to 1.3bn units in 2013, while song streams rose 32% to 118.1bn.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Apple launched its iTunes Radio service last year offering radio-like streaming stations, but not fully on-demand music.

The company will be watching the market closely in 2014 though: figures announced earlier this month by Nielsen and Billboard revealed that while US digital music track sales fell 6% to 1.3bn units in 2013, while song streams rose 32% to 118.1bn.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Apple launched its iTunes Radio service last year offering radio-like streaming stations, but not fully on-demand music.

The company will be watching the market closely in 2014 though: figures announced earlier this month by Nielsen and Billboard revealed that while US digital music track sales fell 6% to 1.3bn units in 2013, while song streams rose 32% to 118.1bn.

Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Apple launched its iTunes Radio service last year offering radio-like streaming stations, but not fully on-demand music.

The company will be watching the market closely in 2014 though: figures announced earlier this month by Nielsen and Billboard revealed that while US digital music track sales fell 6% to 1.3bn units in 2013, while song streams rose 32% to 118.1bn.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Apple launched its iTunes Radio service last year offering radio-like streaming stations, but not fully on-demand music.

The company will be watching the market closely in 2014 though: figures announced earlier this month by Nielsen and Billboard revealed that while US digital music track sales fell 6% to 1.3bn units in 2013, while song streams rose 32% to 118.1bn.

Beats said a year ago that it would be working with music technology company Topspin – where Rogers was CEO before being poached by Beats – to help artists sell merchandise within Beats Music. Since then, Topspin has signed a similar partnership with Spotify.

“Beats Music is based on the belief that all music has value and this concept was instilled in every step of its development. We want it to be just as meaningful for artists as it is for fans,” said Reznor.

Beats Music’s launch kicks off what’s expected to be a year of robust competition for streaming music services. Google’s All Access service launched in 2013, but the company’s YouTube subsidiary is also expected to launch its own subscription service in the first quarter of 2014. French streaming music service Deezer is also expected to launch in the US in the coming months.
