Neil Young urged Spotify employees to quit their jobs in a new attack on the company over its decision to continue giving the polarizing podcaster Joe Rogan a platform.

In a statement published on his official website, Young, 76, said he hoped Spotify workers would “get out of that place before it eats up your soul.”

Spotify continues to face scrutiny over its support for Rogan despite his past comments spreading misinformation around the Covid-19 vaccines and his use of racist slurs on his show, “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

Young, who made headlines last month when he demanded that Spotify remove his music over Rogan’s past comments, told workers that the “big problem” with the streaming service was really its CEO, Daniel Ek.
