Neil Young to return music to Spotify as he attacks ‘disinformation’ across streaming services

Neil Young will return his music to Spotify after keeping it off the streaming platform for over two years.

Young removed his entire catalogue from the world’s most extensive streaming company in January 2022 in protest against Joe Rogan, whose chart-topping podcast was exclusive to Spotify.

Rogan was widely accused of spreading misinformation about Covid vaccines via the podcast, not only by Young but also a group of 270 scientists and healthcare professionals who said Rogan’s misinformation was “a sociological issue of devastating proportions and Spotify is responsible for allowing this activity to thrive on its platform”.

Young called Spotify “the home of life-threatening Covid misinformation. Selling lies for money … They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.” His music was duly taken down, with a Spotify spokesperson saying: “We regret Neil’s decision to remove his music from Spotify, but hope to welcome him back soon.”

Rogan apologised in January 2022, saying, “I don’t always get it right”, and adding that he would try to “balance things out” with “experts with differing opinions”. Spotify chief executive Daniel Ek also apologised: “We have an obligation to do more to provide balance and access to widely accepted information from the medical and scientific communities.”

As of February this year, The Joe Rogan Experience podcast is no longer exclusive to Spotify. The host signed a new multi-year deal, believed to be worth $250m (£196m), that allows the podcast to be distributed by other platforms, including Apple Podcasts, YouTube and Amazon Music.

Young has now said he can’t sustain his opposition across each streaming platform and will return his music to Spotify.

 Coldplay Climate Impact Study

Coldplay as well as being world famous musicians use their position in society to speak out on the impact of climate change not only that they try take action. Now that Coldplay have teamed up with Warner Music GroupLive Nation and the Technology’s Environmental Solutions Initiative for a study of live musics impact of the climate.

the study will reportedly begin with research on the UK and US markets for a report to be fished by July 2024. This will give a better picture to asses “the relationship between live music and climate change”; finding ways the industry and fans “can make tangible improvements to reduce emissions”.

Last June Coldplay stated that their recent ‘Music of the Spheres’ stadium tour reduced its CO2e emissions by 47% compared to their previous tour.

This is the kind of mind set we need our future industry to have.
