Taylor Swift is releasing her entire catalog on all streaming services, ending the pop star’s boycott of Spotify Ltd. over her ability to limit her songs to paying subscribers.

The albums will become available at midnight New York time Thursday night, Swift’s management said on Twitter. None of the catalog has been available on Spotify, the world’s largest paid streaming service, since November 2014 due to a dispute over the release of Swift’s last album, “1989.” While Swift wanted the record to just be available to paid users, who yield more revenue for artists, Chief Executive Officer Daniel Ek defended the practice of making the company’s entire library available on an advertising-supported free tier.
