Years after Welch recorded it for 2001's acclaimed Time (The Revelator), "Everything Is Free" has been embraced by a new generation of independent artists who now see streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music with the same mix of skepticism and despondency that their predecessors once held for companies like Napster… At the time when Welch wrote "Everything is Free", her record deal had expired. Feeling excluded from any future possibilities in the music industry, she and her musical partner, Dave Rawlings, decided to start their own label, Acony Records. Time (The Revelator) was the label's first release; it would end up becoming Welch's signature album, and it helped establish Welch as the in-demand live performer and foundational roots pioneer she is today.

The piece fails to mention that the Sylvan Esso version included Jenn Wasner (as Flock Of Dimes); other than that, great interview. So "the average per-stream payout to artists [by Spotifuck] is reportedly somewhere between $0.006 and $0.0084"... Christ on a stick.
