Finding it "insane" to release for free something that she'd been working on for literally years, Björk has finally deemed that enough time has passed since the actual release of Vulnicura for it to be ok to release on streaming services; apparently she likes the "Netflix" model of putting something up for streaming some time after its proper release.

Earlier in the year she detailed her position on streaming in an interview with Fast Company:

"To work on something for two or three years and then just, Oh, here it is for free. It's not about the money; it's about respect, you know? Respect for the craft and the amount of work you put into it."

I see her point but… putting music on Spotify or whatever is not the same as literally releasing it for free on something like BitTorrent is it?

So it's now available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play. But not Tidal. And there's no comment from Björk as to why Jay Z's offering has been left out entirely.

Last month, Björk also released the 10-minute-long, previously-an-installation video for album track 'Black Lake'.
