Earlier this week, Billboard reported that negotiations between the Beatles and streaming services were complete, and that the Fab Four’s musical catalog could start streaming on services like Spotify and Apple Music as soon as this week.

Now, it’s official: the Beatles’ catalog will be available at 12:01 a.m. on Christmas Eve via Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play, Microsoft Groove, Napster/Rhapsody, Amazon Prime Music, Slacker Radio, Spotify, and Tidal.

(The band’s music has already been available on Internet radio services like Pandora, which are licensed differently.)

“Happy Crimble,” said a press release, “with love from us to you.” The band shared a short video to celebrate the announcement.
