Some songs are not available in new markets

Spotify became available in Balkan countries 2 weeks ago, sounds nice. I downloaded Spotify, bought Premium but I realized that my favorite songs/albums are not available in Kosovo. I checked the available markets and result is:

 

 

 

 

 

 

"available_markets" : [ "AD", "AE", "AL", "AR", "AT", "AU", "BA", "BE", "BG", "BH", "BO", "BR", "BY", "CA", "CH", "CL", "CO", "CR", "CY", "CZ", "DE", "DK", "DO", "DZ", "EC", "EE", "EG", "ES", "FI", "FR", "GB", "GR", "GT", "HK", "HN", "HR", "HU", "ID", "IE", "IL", "IN", "IS", "IT", "JO", "JP", "KW", "KZ", "LB", "LI", "LT", "LU", "LV", "MA", "MC", "MD", "MK", "MT", "MX", "MY", "NI", "NL", "NO", "NZ", "OM", "PA", "PE", "PH", "PL", "PS", "PT", "PY", "QA", "RO", "RU", "SA", "SE", "SG", "SI", "SK", "SV", "TH", "TN", "TW", "UA", "US", "UY", "VN", "ZA" ],

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see there is almost every country that Spotify is available without new
markets.
Here is some albums not available in new markets:

https://open.spotify.com/album/7tF0MZQNVA3pRwwcwN4obL

These are my favorites but I believe there is many more like this.

Hey there @JonathanB3, - Welcome to Spotify!

 

Sometimes content can be unavailable in regions due to licensing agreements made between Artists and Labels and Distributors which Spotify must comply with. I'd recommend checking out this Support Article for more information

 

Hopefully they'll appear on the Spotify platform in the future

 

Take Care,

There is a song by Curtis Stigers called Chances Are. I found it in open.spotify.com and decided to try Spotify, but I cannot find it in my app under Premium plan. It's it for the same reason? I am a Ukrainian.

Hi @Yar_Ilich,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community.

 

If we understand correctly, you're able to play this song on the Web Player and not on the app. Could you let us know in which country your account is registered in? This way we can check the availability of this song.

 

Also, do you use any VPN on your browser? If you do, this may be the cause.

 

Keep us posted.
