During a recent interview with The Independent, Win Butler discussed the upcoming Arcade Fire film The Reflektor Tapes, however, this wasn't the only subject he talked about: the musician also opened up about Tidal and his perception of the music streaming service, saying the launch was "poorly managed" and blaming major labels for Tidal's struggles to stay afloat:

"They [the major labels] dictated that Tidal has to cost $20," Butler said. "The major label music industry has completely ruined every aspect of their business. At every step of the way they’ve had the tools offered to them to create an industry that works, and they’ve completely blown it. That’s why we never had any interest in signing a contract with one of these companies because they’re clearly completely clueless."

Tidal's problems are no secret to the general public, with the rumours of Jay Z wanting to part ways with the service being one of the many red flags raised during the past few months.
