Neil Young wants his music scrubbed from Spotify because of vaccine misinformation on the platform

In a now-deleted post on his site, Young asked his supervisors and record label to eliminate his music from Spotify since he stated the music and podcast platform is “spreading fake information about vaccines — potentially causing death to those who believe this disinformation spread by them.” (Wanderer initially reported the text of the erased post.)

“I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” the 76-year-old stated in Monday’s post, according to Wanderer. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.”

“Rogan” describes Joe Rogan, the exceptionally questionable podcast host who has actually made regular incorrect and unreliable claims surrounding vaccines and Covid-19. Previously this month, a group of more than 250 researchers, physicians and nurses penned an open letter to Spotify condemning the banner for platforming Rogan and getting in touch with Spotify to caution its listeners about false information.

“The Joe Rogan Experience” was Spotify’s most popular podcast internationally in 2021, according to Range. It ended up being a Spotify unique in 2020, when Rogan signed a multi-year unique licensing offer with the streaming service, believed to deserve more than $100 million, the Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

CNN has actually connected to Young’s supervisor, his press agent at Warner Records and Spotify for remark.

Frank Gironda, Young’s supervisor, did verify to the Daily Monster that the 2 had actually gone over Young’s issues and were “trying to figure this out right now.” He stated, too, that Young was “very upset about this disinformation.”
