Adele's latest album is finally coming to Spotify -- 7 months after it came out

Seven months after its release, Adele’s record-setting album “25” will finally be available for streaming on Spotify at 12:01 a.m. EST on Friday.

The news was initially confirmed by fans in Australia and New Zealand, where it is already Friday, June 24.

Adele famously held off on featuring “25” on streaming services upon its release back in November, citing a personal distaste for the medium.

“I believe music should be an event,” Adele told Time in December. “For me, all albums that come out, I’m excited about leading up to release day. I don’t use streaming. I buy my music. I download it, and I buy a physical [copy] just to make up for the fact that someone else somewhere isn’t. It’s a bit disposable, streaming.”

With physical copy and download sales alone, Adele’s album sold 3.38 million in its first week and became just the sixth album to sell more than 8 million copies in the US since 2001.

There is still no word on whether the album will appear on Apple Music or Tidal.
