The Stone Roses' Ian Brown Says Spotify Deleted His Anti-Lockdown Song
"Little Seed Big Tree" is no longer available to stream
Published Mar 15, 2021It's been two years since the Stone Roses broke up again, but frontman Ian Brown has kept plenty busy by getting really pissed off about COVID-19, which he called a "plandemic" that was "designed to make us digital slaves." He even released an anti-lockdown song late last year, and he says the tune has fallen victim to censorship.
For those who may have forgotten, Brown's 2020 single was a ditty called "Little Seed Big Tree," which included lines like the following:
A sonic lockdown in your home town / A sonic lockdown, can you feel me now? / A sonic lockdown, state shakedown, a mass breakdown / Put your muzzle on, get back in your basket / Get behind your doors cos living here is drastic.
The song has been removed from Spotify, apparently, and Brown is not having it. On Twitter, he said, "SPOTiFY stream the streams and censor artists like they have with my last song TOOK IT DOWN just put it down the memory hole! FREE EXPRESSiON AS REVOLUTiON."
The song has indeed been removed from Spotify, but it's still available on most of the other big streaming services if you simply must hear it.
