🔗 Apple Music will now pay 10% higher royalties to artists for Spatial Audio music - 9to5Mac // Benjamin Mayo

Apple will pay up to 10% more per play in royalties for tracks where a spatial version is available. This is starting with January’s payouts.

Crucially, Apple Music users do not necessarily have to listen in Spatial Audio for the artist to be rewarded with the bonus payout.

Good. To shepard someone toward what you want them to do, you must reward them. Behavioral psychology at its most basic!
