Fans launch petition to bring Taylor Swift back to Spotify

Taylor Swift's fans have launched a petition urging the singer to return her music to streaming service Spotify.

The Love Story singer hit headlines on Monday (03Nov14) when her record label bosses removed her entire back catalogue from the online music portal, sparking outrage among her devotees who swamped social media with complaints.


Fans have now set up a petition in a bid to persuade Swift to return to Spotify. The missive, posted on ipetitions.com by a female fan, suggests many of the singer's young devotees will be left unable to listen to her new music as they cannot afford the high prices to buy it for themselves.


The message states, "I love Taylor Swift. We all do!... I know there are millions of other girls out there who admire Taylor Swift as much as I do and appreciate her music and what it has done for us. Many can't afford to buy CDs at a store.

Spotify bosses are also campaigning to bring Swift back and have released a playlist of songs which spells out a clear message to the star. The note, made up of song titles by artists including Red Hot Chili Peppers, reads, "Hey. Taylor. We Wanted To Play. Your Amazing. Love Songs. And. They're Not. Here Right Now. We Want You Back.
