Having held out long and hard, and with a grimace in their little faces, all the way until now, The Eagles made their entire back catalogue available on a number of streaming services yesterday – in the UK on Spotify, Deezer and Rdio, the latter having already made the catalogue available, seemingly by accident, for less than 24 hours last month.

Says Deezer’s Head Of Artist Marketing, Pierre Niboyet: “Welcoming one of the most successful bands ever on our service is always an event for Deezer. After all, our main focus is music discovery! But it’s not just about new releases, it’s also about connecting artists with new fans”.

The Eagles’ decision to allow their music onto streaming services follows Pink Floyd’s arrival on Spotify last week, which came after fans were encouraged to play the band’s song ‘Wish You Were Here’ a million times. Spotify’s exclusive deal with Pink Floyd is something the company has been talking up rather a lot lately, including in a heavy GoogleAds campaign, which, as Music Ally noticed yesterday, has been showing up on Deezer’s website.
