Joni Mitchell Returns to Spotify After Two Year Protest Against Joe Rogan

After two years away, Joni Mitchell’s music quietly returned to Spotify.

The legendary singer, 80, along with friend Neil Young, 78, removed their music catalogs from Spotify in January of 2022, citing concerns over vaccine misinformation spread on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, which had an exclusive deal with the streaming platform at the time.

Mitchell, a polio survivor, wrote in a statement on her website that she stands with Young and the scientific community against misinformation.

“I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify,” Mitchell wrote 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.”

At the time, the singer also referenced an open letter signed by medical professionals urging Spotify to adopt an anti-misinformation policy due to concerns about Rogan’s podcast promoting vaccine skepticism and spreading conspiracy theories.

Mitchell did not make any formal announcement about the return of her catalog, which includes hits like “Big Yellow Taxi.” Rolling Stone reports that fans on social media noticed Mitchell’s music was back and spread the news themselves on X (formerly known as Twitter). 

Representatives for the singer did not return requests for comment to several publications including Rolling Stone.

Mitchell’s return to Spotify comes just in time for the 56th anniversary of her debut album, Songs to a Seagull
