Lots of album titles greyed out

Music Fan

I am really thinking of cancelling my Spotify-subscription again.

Some days ago i was happily listening to the latest Mezzoforte album "Islands", today i wanted to listen again and all titles were greyed out.

Nearly all Mezzoforte albums are unplayable through Spotify. The same with "Oli Silk", all three albums are listed but unplayable like many other artists. Interestingly i also have a Simfy account and all of these albums play just fine there.

 

Can someone please explain what's going on here? Also why can some albums have single tracks unplayable? I really don't understand this issue!

why does it work with other streaming services then? do they own the rights in contrasts to spotify? is it a limitation of austria where i am living? do these albums work somewhere else?

It's most likely that while the albums might be in the full Spotify catalogue (As in, it is available elsewhere), that these albums have not been licensed to be played through Spotify in your country at present. It's explained in a little more detail here.
