  • Taylor Swift與環球音樂集團的協議包括一份送給其他藝人的禮物

    ◎Taylor Swift再次利用她的力量幫助其他數百名音樂人,環球音樂集團將把賣出Spotify股票的利潤與尚未獲得其預付款的藝人分享。雖然這個幾乎前所未有的付款承諾將會與索尼音樂所提的Spotify支付相近,但對於環球音樂集團能如此慷慨而該感謝的對象應該是Taylor Swift。

    ◎Taylor Swift在宣布從獨立的Big Machine唱片改為與環球音樂集團/ Republic唱片簽約後寫道:「有一個條件對我來說比任何其他協議的條款更重要。作為我與環球音樂集團新合約的一部分,我要求他們出售他們的Spotify股票所導致的款項要分發給他們的藝人,且是不可扣抵的。他們慷慨地同意這一點,他們認為這將是比其他主要唱片公司之前的支付還要更好的條款。我認為這表明我們正朝著為創作者帶來積極變革的路上邁進,這是一個我永遠不會停止嘗試以任何方式幫助其實現的目標。我很高興有Lucian Grainge先生(環球唱片執行長)作為這些努力的合作夥伴。」



    Taylor Swift has once again used her power to help hundreds of other musicians. Universal Music Group will share profits from the sale of Spotify stock with artists that have not recouped their advances. While this almost unprecedented payment promise will match Sony's Spotify payments, the real person to thank for UMG's largesse is Swift.

    Announcing her move from indie Big Machine Universal Music Group/Republic, Swift wrote:

    "There was one condition which meant more to me than any other deal point. As part of my new contract with Universal Music Group, I asked that any sale of their Spotify shares result in a distribution of money to their artists, non-recoupable.

    They have generously agreed to this, at what they believe will be much better terms than paid out previously by other major labels. I see this as a sign that we are headed towards positive change for creators – a goal I'm never going to stop trying to help to achieve, in whatever ways I can. I'm so happy to have Sir Lucian Grainge as a partner in these efforts."

    It is estimated that UMG still owns about $850 million in Spotify stock. Sony also shared it's Spotify profit's with unrecouped artists, But Warner Music Group did not ignore unrecouped balances, resulting in payments to far fewer artists.
