In a flashback to how art that offended the Soviet regime was blacklisted, streaming giant Spotify is now censoring lyrics of songs containing “disinformation.”
Music icon Ian Brown has revealed that Spotify has removed his anti-lockdown song Little Seed Big Tree, which was originally released last September.
“SPOTiFY broadcasts the streams and censors the artists like they did with my last song TOOK IT DOWN, just put it in the memory hole! FREE EXPRESSION AS A REVOLUTION, ”Brown tweeted.

The song included the lyrics;
Masonic lockdown, in your hometown
Masonic lockdown, can you hear me now
From top to bottom, the shock of the soul down
Shakedown, mass collapse
Global orders, crossing borders
Get behind your doors for the new world order
Brown has been a vehement voice against the lockdown and mandatory vaccinations, announcing that he has declined to headline Manchester’s Neighborhood Weekender festival because organizers said proof of COVID vaccination- 19 could be a condition of entry.
The former Stone Roses frontman has claimed he will NEVER sing in front of a crowd that must be vaccinated as a condition of attendance. NEVER AGAIN!”
“Spotify prohibits content on the platform that promotes false, misleading, or deceptive dangerous content about COVID-19 that may cause harm offline and / or pose a direct threat to public health. When content that violates this standard is identified, it is removed from the platform, ”a Spotify spokesperson told Reclaim The Net.
The practice is a continuation of the application of a monoculture of thought by ensuring that any art form conveying a message offensive to technocratic elites is blacklisted.
Throughout the course of the Soviet Empire, dictators demanded that “socialist realism” be the prescribed style of idealized art.
This meant that every sculpture, statue, and painting had to conform to an established aesthetic in order to “educate citizens on how to be the perfect Soviets.”
In order to consolidate loyalty to the Communist Party and promote a utopian image of Soviet society, “The goal of socialist realism was to limit popular culture to a specific and highly regulated emotional expression faction that promoted Soviet ideals.
In the age of mass censorship in Silicon Valley, it is essential that we stay in touch.
