Why can`t I listen to Skyfall by Adele in Spotify (Norway)

I`ve tried to star "Skyfall" by Adele, but it won`t work. I can`t listen to the song, nothing happens when I am clicking on the song. I`m from Norway, but radio stations here have added the song to their playlists, and linked it to spotify, still I can`listen to it. It`s a really good Bond song. FYI: I got Spotify Premium! Appreciate feedback!

Samw here in UK. Only tribute versions available. Weird as all other Adele songs available. Something to do with Bond movie copyright?

The reason is that for the song "Skyfall" by ADELE no streaming rights have been allocated. I hope I could help you

To expand upon elninho7's answer, you can find a little more about why this might be right here. We hope it makes it to Spotify soon!

Re: Why can`t I listen to Skyfall by Adele in Spotify (Norway)

Not really good enough in my opinion, I pay £9.99 per month for a premium subscription yet I cannot even listen to Skyfall by Adele which is a major and current track. Hell at the time of writing this comment not only have I seen the film but the track is on it's way OUT of the UK charts. Although I am using this track as an example it is the principle that matters, I buy into the spotify idea but not when this sort of nonsense makes me look a fool to those who get their music by hook or crook. If I asked for some obscure white label rave track from 1992 in my keyword search I would be ok with that but when you don't have current MAJOR tracks it makes me consider my subscription and why I pay for spotify. I could download the adele track right now if I was that way inclined but I am willing to pay £9.99 per month as it is value for money IF I CAN GET ALL CURRENT TRACKS but I am getting increasingly annoyed with tracks being blocked for whatever legal reason. Do I have to take the alternative route and cancel my subscription?

 

I don't really care who is preventing spotify from allowing this track to be listened to, if it is on sale to the public I EXPECT IT TO BE AVAILABLE, simple as that.

You can't force publishers to license their songs for streaming, now can you? I mean, you can complain, but I wouldn't know what Spotify could do more to get those songs in the playlist.

 

Obviously we can keep bugging Spotify to try to get the license, but as long as the publishers don't change their minds there is nothing much to do.

 

By saying "I don't care who took my toy, but I want it, I want it!" you're not really getting anything closer to a solution...

 

And yes. I'm also a premium user...

The other albums from Adele are available on spotify now ... but they took a looong time from release to being made available. As mentioned above its the publisher who is holding g them back, perhaps due to Adele's insistence or her manager's - the best thing to do is vent your frustration to them via whatever social media platforms they use and enough of their fans make a fuss maybe they'll wake up and realise they are missing out

Its only partly Spotify's fault, but that doesnt make it less annoying. Just about any song you can think of appears in the iTunes store instantly. I changed from iTunes to Spotify and this is a major drawback as this happens all the time on spotify. Sure spotify is cheaper, but it's clear why...
