Despite not appearing on popular streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, Adele's new album, 25, is now available to stream on Pandora. The company confirmed the news in a statement to Entertainment Weekly:

"Good news radio listeners, you can now hear all songs from Adele's latest album 25 on Pandora," a Pandora spokesperson said in a statement to EW. "It is clear radio listeners love Adele and are coming to Pandora to enjoy her incredible music. Since 'Hello' was added to our platform last month, her total station adds are up 1200 percent. Within that same timeframe, spins for 'Hello' are more than 5x the number for the next most popular song 'Someone Like You.'"

Adele made a splash last week when it was revealed that the new album wouldn't be coming to streaming services, likely due to the lower payout that services like Spotify provide to artists. While it's definitely great to see the album make its way to Pandora, the experience will be a bit more limited without the ability to stream the full album in one go due to Pandora's radio-like nature.
