New York Times: “For Adele?s millions of fans, perhaps the biggest question about her next album is whether its songs will pack the same emotional wallop that helped make her last record a global smash.

But behind the scenes, music executives are anxiously awaiting another detail: Whether Adele will make her new songs available on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music or withhold them for a time to propel album sales. With two weeks left before the scheduled release of the album, titled ?25,? streaming services are still awaiting the final word.

Adele?s choice will reflect the music industry?s larger debate over how fully to embrace the streaming format. Elite artists like Adele, Taylor Swift and Beyonc? still sell millions of albums on CD or via downloads, and by streaming their new songs immediately, they risk sacrificing those lucrative sales.”
