Apple Music has reversed its payment policy, a day after the singer Taylor Swift said she was refusing to allow the company to stream her album 1989.

In an open letter to Apple, Swift said she was withholding the record as she was unhappy with the three-month free trial offered to subscribers.

Now Apple says it will pay artists for music streamed during trial periods.

“We hear you @taylorswift13 and indie artists. Love, Apple,” tweeted executive Eddy @Cue.

Swift had said the plan was “unfair”, arguing Apple had the money to cover the cost.
