It seems that Neil Young has had a change of heart in relation to Donald Trump using his music on the campaign trail.

The US presidential candidate had previously been criticised by Young for using his song 'Rockin' in the Free World', who said "I make my music for people, not for candidates." Trump later revealed that he had obtained a licencing agreement to use the song, but that there were "plenty of other songs to choose from."

Now, Young had clarified his stance on the matter, saying that although he was a supporter of Bernie Sanders, ""once the music goes out, everybody can use it for anything."

He told Reuters: "The fact that I said I was for Bernie Sanders and then he didn’t ask me to use ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ doesn’t mean that he can’t use it. He actually got a license to use it. I mean, he said he did and I believe him. So I got nothing against him.”

In any case, the musician is a Canadian citizen, so won't be voting for either candidate.
