Crosby, Stills, and Nash’s Music Is Back On Spotify
The music of Crosby, Stills & Nash can now be heard on Spotify again, after five months of being removed on the streaming service.
The group’s catalog officially returned to Spotify just recently July 2, according to Billboard. CSN will reportedly be donating “proceeds from streams to COVID-19 charities for at least a month.”
It all started back in January, when Neil Young demanded for Spotify to remove all of his music. He said he doesn’t want his music to share a home with vaccine misinformation spread by podcaster Joe Rogan on the streaming service. He wrote an open letter to his manager and record label criticizing Rogan and Spotify and said:
“I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them.”
David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash all voiced support for their former bandmate and soon followed his lead by removing their music from the streaming platform as well. They declared in a joint statement on Feb. 2:
“We support Neil and we agree with him that there is dangerous disinformation being aired on Spotify’s Joe Rogan podcast.
“While we always value alternate points of view, knowingly spreading disinformation during this global pandemic has deadly consequences. Until real action is taken to show that a concern for humanity must be balanced with commerce, we don’t want our music — or the music we made together — to be on the same platform.”
Although, CSN’s music is now back on Spotify, Young’s still can’t be found in the service. His few pieces of live materials and some scattered work he’s done with other artists are the only ones left.
