Bob Seger brings music to streaming services

Bob Seger brings music to streaming services Bob Seger brings music to streaming services

Unlike many streaming holdouts, the vast majority of Seger's music - even his bestselling Greatest Hits - was also never available to purchase as digital files.

Today, much of Seger's music has finally arrived in the digital realm, and so half of that late-career dereliction - whether by design or overly tightened professional security - is now erased.

The move ends a long digital freeze-out stemming from arguments between Seger's longtime manager, Punch Andrews, and his record label, Capitol Records, over royalty issues. But as Rolling Stone reports, 13 of Seger's albums, including a generous handful of classics, are now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and most of the other big streaming services.

Seger previously has explained that he does not listen to music online but described his absence as the result of commercial disputes rather than ideology. "Streaming and downloads have always favored singles artists".

This was confirmed at the 2016 Tokyo Game Show, but its presence here suggests we're also going to see it in the west eventually. Destiny 2's new Red Legion trailer also gave us a sneak peek at some of Destiny 2's PlayStation exclusive content.

Few major Western artists still refuse to stream.

Ten of Seger's albums hitting services today are available for streaming for the first time, including Beautiful Loser, Night Moves, The Distance, Stranger in Town, Against the Wind, Ramblin' Gamblin' Man, Like a Rock and a variety of compilations.

The streaming comes as the Oakland County-based Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and his Silver Bullet Band are preparing for their Runaway Train Tour, which kicks off August 24 in Toledo and includes shows September 9 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre and September 23 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The tour was announced June 1, on the heels of his Pine Knob Music Theatre show in Detroit selling out in 9 minutes during the fan club pre-sale. Special guest HEART's NANCY WILSON will appear on select dates. The live albums "Live Bullet" (1976) and "Nine Tonight" (1981) are also included, as are the hits packages "Greatest Hits", "Greatest Hits 2" and "Ultimate Hits". Seger is an inductee of both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
