:: Following Lily Allen and Marina And The Diamonds, Mumford & Sons are the latest to publicly disregard Jay Z’s TIDAL. In an interview with The Daily Beast, they stated: “We wouldn’t have joined it anyway, even if they had asked. We don’t want to be tribal. I think smaller bands should get paid more for it, too. Bigger bands have other ways of making money, so I don’t think you can complain. A band of our size shouldn’t be complaining. And when they say it’s artist-owned, it’s owned by those rich, wealthy artists.” [The Daily Beast]
