HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE:MAP SHOWS PEOPLE IN EVERY CORNER OF THE WORLD ARE LISTENING TO STREAMS OF THE BEATLES

Brandwatch also created a topic cloud concerning mentions of The Beatles streaming, which revealed Spotify was the most talked about streaming site, followed by Apple Music (pictured)
Original tunes are live on nine services including Amazon Prime, Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify, Rhapsody, Google Play, Groove, Tidal and Slacker (pictured). A total of 13 remastered studio albums are available including Please Please Me, With The Beatles, A Hard Day's Night and Beatles For Sale
The news comes at a time when streaming services have taken over digital downloads as the most prominent way to consume music. 
However, several artists - most notably Adele and Taylor Swift - have questioned the value of the platform.
Swift famously withdrew her entire back catalogue from Spotify in 2014, saying: 'Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for.' 

In an interview with Time magazine earlier this week, Adele also called streaming 'a bit disposable'.
However, technology giant Apple entered the streaming market for the first time earlier this year with the launch of Apple Music, which already has around 15 million users across its paid and free trial tiers.
Scandinavian-founded Spotify has more than 40 million users across its paid-for and advert-supported subscriptions.
The Beatles catalogue will be available on both the free and the paid-for versions of Spotify.
