Spotify will remove Neil Young's music after he issues ultimatum over Joe Rogan podcast

Spotify plans to remove Neil Young's music after the singer-songwriter accused the platform of spreading COVID-19 misinformation through Joe Rogan's podcast. 

“We want all the world’s music and audio content to be available to Spotify users. With that comes great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators," a representative from the company told TechCrunch in an emailed statement. "We have detailed content policies in place and we’ve removed over 20,000 podcast episodes related to COVID since the start of the pandemic. We regret Neil’s decision to remove his music from Spotify, but hope to welcome him back soon."
