Bon Iver’s music mysteriously disappeared from Spotify yesterday, and Bon Iver fans are pissed. This is just a sampling of the outrage from Bon Iver’s RABID fans:
Bon Iver removed the "For Emma, forever ago" album from spotify. Needless to say, I am on the verge of tears.-- Kathy Clavin (@KathyClavin) March 4, 2014
@Spotify What happened to the track "Blood bank" by Bon Iver? Why was it removed?-- Rasmus W. Hansen (@razzledazzle_13) March 4, 2014
Spotify y u no have Bon Iver-- Shannon Costello (@shaaaayco) March 4, 2014
The explanation, which we’ve just heard back from Spotify:
Apparently, there was a transfer of rights and unfortunately we were not informed. I can confirm that they will be back up on the service tomorrow!!
Finally, Bon Iver fans can rest easy.
