Country singer Jason Aldean has followed Taylor Swift's example and pulled his new album from music streaming service Spotify.

The Shake It Off hitmaker removed her back catalogue from the company last week (ends09Nov14), stating she is "not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music."

Following Swift's decision, musicians including Bono and Labrinth came out in defence of Spotify, but Aldean has decided to pull Old Boots, New Dirt from the online service a month after its release.

Aldean's previous albums remain on the site.

He has not offered up a reason why the new record has been yanked.

More than three million Spotify users streamed the album during its first week of release last month (Oct14), setting a record for the best-ever debut for a country album, according to
