Joni Mitchell’s Music Returns To Spotify

Joni Mitchell is back on Spotify, returning her music to the platform more than two years after it was pulled.

Mitchell boycotted Spotify as a protest against some of its content. She was following the lead of Neil Young, who removed his catalog to protest the company’s decision to give podcast host Joe Rogan an exclusive platform.

Young didn’t like Rogan’s Covid-19 talks, but is also returning. Young announced earlier this month he was coming back to Spotify, acknowledging that he can’t boycott every streamer that carries information he doesn’t agree with.

Mitchell herself did not release a statement on the return, but a search reveals it is back.

Rogan signed a new deal with Spotify in February, which the Wall Street Journal estimated was worth as much as US$250 million over several years.

Mitchell is planning Hollywood Bowl dates on Oct. 19 and 20.
