Neil Young's fans will get to enjoy his music on Spotify again.

Neil pulled his music off the streaming platform after misinformation was shared on 'The Joe Rogan Experience' podcast about the COVID-19 vaccine.

However, now the podcast is no longer exclusive to Spotify but to other streaming platforms like Apple and Amazon, Neil has decided to go back to the streaming platform. 

“Spotify, the #1 streamer of low res music in the world — Spotify, where you get less quality than we made, will now be home of my music again,” Young announced Tuesday in a post on his website.

“My decision comes as music services Apple and Amazon have started serving the same disinformation podcast features I had opposed at SPOTIFY. I cannot just leave Apple and Amazon, like I did Spotify, because my music would have very little streaming outlet to music lovers at all, so I have returned to Spotify, in sincere hopes that Spotify sound quality will improve and people will be able to hear and feel all the music as we made it. 

"Qobuz and Tidal, where my music is presented, are all High res as well.”

“I hope all you millions of Spotify users enjoy my songs! They will now all be there for you except for the full sound we created,” Neil wrote. 

“Hopefully Spotify will turn to Hi Res as the answer and serve all the music to everyone,” Young wrote.

“Spotify, you can do it! Really be #1 in all ways. You have the music and the listeners!!!! Start with a limited Hi res tier and build from there!” he wrote.
