When Adele gave the world her award-winning album 25 last November she ensured it could only be accessed once a payment had been made.

But thankfully the songstress seems to have had a change of heart as – according to the BBC – 25 has finally been added in its entirety to Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play Music, Amazon Prime and Tidal.

Before now individual songs from the record-breaking album – which features Hello and When We Were Young – were available on streaming sites but this is the first time the full collection has been made available for free.

In the past the Grammy-winner said music streaming didn't appeal to her.

Last year she told TIME magazine: "I know that streaming music is the future, but it's not the only way to consume music."

"I can't pledge allegiance to something that I don't know how I feel about yet."

We're not sure if this is the start of a new trend for Adele, but at least we'll have 25 to listen to while we wait to find out.
