American Airlines Responds to Criticism and Starts Playing Indie Music

The instrumental versions of pop songs had become tired on airlines, and passengers complained about being bored with the music, and ready for a change.  The world’s largest carrier, American Airlines, had a solution to this problem and has created an indie music themed playlists for its boarding and exit soundtracks.  This creates better song selections and is designed to capture a younger demographic. The cabin music is reportedly being updated as well so that flyers become familiarized with up and coming indie artists, like Haim and Phantogram.

Check out the image above for a sample of some of the new indie music playlists American Airlines reportedly plans to incorporate.

Spotify Paying Subscribers

Major labels have been putting a lot of heavy pressure on Spotify to limit free access but

Major labels like Universal Music Group have been putting heavy pressure on Spotify to limit free access.  But Spotify is stepping up to defend freemium, and put paid-only services on blast.

Spotify says that they have 20 million paying subscribers.  They say they’ve paid out a cumulative total of $3 billion in royalties, and $300 million in the first three months of this year. 

Spotify also claims that payouts for indie artists have been $700,000 a year on average.  Additionally, Spotify estimates that indie artists will receive $1.2 million in the coming year, but they don’t explain their estimation.

How Apple Could Get Indie Music Labels on Board with Apple Music

Apple Music will debut in two weeks, but indie music publishers say that haven’t heard anything from Apple about licenses.  This is leading many people in the music industry to believe that Apple will email a take-it-or-leave-it contract.


As of April 17 Apple Music is out of Beta and is available online through the streaming service’s web app.

Although Spotify still ranks as one of the top music streaming services worldwide with 100 million subscribers, Apple Music is making it’s move and currently has 60 million paying subscribers. Unlike Spotify, Apple Music currently offers a limited free trial (1 month), and there’s no free tier.

Indie Labels can now get on board with Apple Music and benefit from the 50 million covid 19 advance fund for indie labels.
