Joni Mitchell Returns To Spotify Years After Boycotting It

On Friday people all of a sudden noticed that the singer’s music seemingly reappeared on the platform, days after Neil Young also made his return. Joni hasn’t made a public announcement of her return or why.

In January 2022, Mitchell announced that she was removing her music from Spotify in solidarity with Neil Young. “I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify,” she wrote on her website at the time. “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.”

Earlier this month, the Young clarified that his Spotify return was not because of a reversal on his original stance, but because other audio streaming giants have begun playing Rogan’s podcast not just Spotify. Young struck a new deal with Spotify last month, which included his show being distributed across several podcast platforms.

Not entirely sure of both of their reasons to return but it’s nice to be able to listen to them again.
