Neil Young Back on Spotify Along with CSN: Joni Mitchell Returning Too? Did They Tell Her?


Neil Young has caved to Spotify.

After removing his music to protest podcaster Joe Rogan, Neil has put all his music back on Spotify.

Also back are David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash. When Neil left, so did they. Now they’re all back.

But Joni Mitchell’s music has not returned to the streamer. Remember, she exited in sympathy with her pals. It was a lovely gesture. But where did it get her? She lost a lot of revenue she would gained since the whole gang walked off two years ago.

Joni posted in January 2022:

“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.”

Let’s hope she’s coming back, too! No one should let Joe Rogan affect their lives!
