Unbearable amount of ads

I've never had a problem with the Spotify ads because they were infrequent and I understood the necessity. But lately the amount of ads has been absolutely ridiculous. Several commercials are played every 2 or 3 songs, whereas before 2 commercials would play every 7 or 8 songs. Sometimes up to NINE commercials will play in a row before my music starts playing again. It's so frustrating I've started listening to Pandora instead. Why is there this sudden increase in ads???
