Even if you’ve been very bad this year, you have at least one surprise Christmas present on its way, provided you’ve got access to Spotify, Apple Music, or one of a plethora of popular music streaming services. That’s because The Beatles‘ back catalog is coming to online streaming this Christmas Eve as the clock strikes 12.
Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Music, Deezer, Tidal, Slacker, Groove and Rhapsody will all be home to The Beatles’ work as soon as it’s Christmas Eve in your time zone – a reversal of the band’s longtime refusal to be heard on such formats. It’s a pretty cool surprise announcement, and will give you something to do on Christmas Eve that isn’t listening to family members talk about Donald Trump.
You can see the official announcement in the short animated video below. And for more on this little-known rock band, check out The Beatles at their official site right here.
