Prince Harry was under pressure to cut ties with Spotify yesterday after the streaming giant was accused of promoting anti-vax content.

Harry and wife Meghan have a deal worth a reported £18million to make podcasts for Spotify, although they have only released one episode so far.

But now rock legend Neil Young has demanded that all his vast catalogue of music be removed from the platform because of ‘life-threatening misinformation to the music loving people’.

US comedian Joe Rogan hosts a successful podcast on Spotify and has suggested younger people do not need a jab.

Last month he interviewed Dr Robert Malone, a hero of the anti-vax movement.

The singer said Rogan’s show puts lives at risk, saying of Spotify: ‘They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.’

The firm said it regretted Young’s decision to withdraw his music, but said it hoped ‘to welcome him back soon’.

Harry, 37, has described online misinformation as a ‘global humanitarian issue’ and hit out at social media for ‘peddling lies’ about vaccines.

Spotify said it employed a team of experts to remove false Covid claims.
