You can if you can get a midi file, if you’ve got an iPhone GarageBand is free and it will do it. The other possibility is to search for backing tracks that are Royalty free.
I’ve not found anything that will work with an mp3 file but there may be something that I haven’t found.
My singing sucks so I’m learning Guitar and Ukulele, it’s fun 🌟

This is a pretty good site for creating custom backing tracks of well known songs:

If its covers, you can also use Guitar Pro and export the midi. In other words, find a tabbed GP track from some where like Ultimateguitar.com and open that in Guitar Pro.
Export the midi tracks you want (they need to be done individually) and then import them to your DAW. I've been doing mainly for bass and drums also keys if present on the track. And then add my own guitar parts. But if you just wanted to drop the vocals you could export from GP and import to your DAW and add your own vocals.

Cheers

Riffstation has a function for isolating tracks, or rather frequency bands. It is highly dependent on how the recording was mixed however.

Cool beans, Johan217! Good vibes go out to you for sharing this info. I use Riffstation a lot but never the isolation feature. This is a cool new skill for me to develop.

EDIT: Almost forgot to post a link:
https://riffstation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/208243445-How-do-I-use-the-Isolate-Tool-

EDIT2: I was able to easily isolate the beat on a song I've been working on and also change the tempo to suit my stylization. This opens up a whole new world for me.
