TORONTO – In a change of heart, Taylor Swift has decided to put her 1989 album on Apple Music. Swift tweeted Thursday, “After the events of this week, I’ve decided to put 1989 on Apple Music…and happily so.”

Apple announced Sunday that it will pay royalties to artists and record labels for music played during a free, three-month trial of its new streaming music service following public criticism from the pop superstar.

Apple had already agreed to share revenue from paid subscriptions to the new Apple Music service, which will cost $10 a month.

But Swift said she would withhold her latest album from the service because Apple wasn’t planning to pay artists and labels directly for the use of their music during the free, introductory period.

Swift said the decision to put the album on Apple Music is not an exclusive deal with the tech company.

“This is simply the first time it’s felt right in my gut to stream my album. Thank you, Apple, for your change of heart,” she tweeted.

1989 is not available on any other streaming app at this time.

On Wednesday, a number of prominent indie music labels – including Beggars Group, which represents artists like U.K. pop star Adele – said they were happy with the changes to Apple’s terms and agreed to support the deal.
