Neil Young published an open letter to his management and label on Monday (January 24th) requesting his music to be removed from Spotify due to the platform’s heavy support of The Joe Rogan Experience, which has contributed greatly to COVID and vaccine misinformation. Spotify has since abided by Young’s request and pulled his music from their platform.
“I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” Young wrote in his letter. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.”
