Joni Mitchell Says She’s Removing Her Music From Spotify in Solidarity With Neil Young

Joni Mitchell has said she’s removing her work from Spotify, in solidarity with Neil Young’s decision to do the same this week. Pitchfork has contacted Spotify for comment.

The singer-songwriter posted a statement to her website Friday night (January 28), which reads in full:

I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify. Irresponsible people are spreading lies that are costing people their lives. I stand in solidarity with Neil Young and the global scientific and medical communities on this issue.

Young had requested the removal of his work earlier in the week, citing Spotify’s role in “spreading fake information about vaccines” by hosting Joe Rogan’s podcast. The platform followed through on Young’s request on Wednesday.
