As requested, Neil Young's music will be taken off Spotify. Rolling Stone reported that after the singer/songwriter demanded his music be pulled in response to podcaster Joe Rogan's misinformation regarding covid, the streaming service complied.
In a letter posted on the official Neil Young Archives page, Young thanked his label Warner Brothers for standing by him and ultimately taking a financial hit, and slammed Spotify, labeling it “a very damaging force via its public misinformation and lies about Covid.”
Young went on to explain, “Spotify represents 60 percent of the streaming of my music to listeners around the world, almost every record I have ever released is available — my life's music — a huge loss for my record company to absorb. Yet my friends at Warner Brothers Reprise stood with me, recognizing the threat the Covid misinformation on Spotify posed to the world — particularly for our young people who think everything they hear on Spotify is true. Unfortunately, it is not.”
