A report went out last Friday morning claiming Joni Mitchell had passed away. The legendary singer-songwriter’s reps set the record straight, saying she’s still very much alive. A rep for Rhino Records said, “I can confirm all is well so this was done in error.” Rhino Records has been reissuing Joni’s massive catalog.
The inaccurate report appeared to be part of an accidentally published pre-written obituary, with the headline reading “Joni Mitchell Dies at TK AGE,” with “TK” standing for “to come.” The article also left areas that needed to be filled in.
The article was quickly pulled. It did lead some to believe that Joni may actually have died.
