Global music and entertainment streaming service, TIDAL, is now available for music fans and artists in the UAE. Launched in 2015, today TIDAL is available in 61 countries, with more than 80 million songs and 350,000 high-quality videos in its catalogue. Music fans never have to miss a beat by listening to their favourite artists with HiFi sound. For artists, TIDAL offers new ways to get paid to help them create on their own terms with support from fans.

TIDAL offers two listening options for fans to choose from: TIDAL HiFi, and TIDAL HiFi Plus. Subscribers have access to the same catalogue of over 80 million songs and expertly curated playlists, with each tier having its own set of perks:

  • TIDAL HiFi: At $5.50/month, this tier offers interruption-free access to HiFi sound quality. With TIDAL HiFi, members can connect TIDAL to speakers including cars, download music to listen offline, and see individualised daily listening insights with the new My Activity feature.
  • TIDAL HiFi Plus: For $11/month, HiFi Plus features everything the HiFi tier offers, in addition the introduction of fan-centered royalties and direct-to-artist payouts. HiFi Plus will also continue to provide access to the best-in-class immersive sound formats (Dolby Atmos Music & Sony 360 Audio Recordings) and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA), alongside early access to exclusive offerings and future features.
  • TIDAL Family: Enjoy music on up to six accounts for $8.50/month for Family HiFi or $17/month for Family HiFi Plus.

“TIDAL launching in the UAE gives my fans a new platform to listen and enjoy my music with high quality sound,” said Ragheb Alama, singer and composer. “I’m excited to see TIDAL help fans support their favourite artists in new ways with features like direct-to-artist payments because for any artist, our fans’ support is the reason we make music.”

In addition to the broad catalogue of songs to choose from, TIDAL members will have access to regularly updated playlists showcasing local artists including new music across genres including pop, dance, and electronic.

“The UAE is multicultural, has a strong music culture, and is a leader in bringing world-class entertainment to music fans,” said Chief Operating Officer of TIDAL, Lior Tibon. “Fans can now listen to music and support their favourite artists at the same time as TIDAL continues to extend support for artists with new ways to get paid. We’re excited to support the music culture in the UAE and further put fans and artists’ experiences first.”

TIDAL is available for download for Android devices through Play Store and iOS via the App Store.
