Uploaded music through Distrokid, the first track is greyed out?

So I'm not sure if this has something to do with the distribution company I went through or if it has something to do with Spotify, but only 8 out of 9 of my songs are showing up on Spotify.  The opening track is greyed out, which usually means the artist made it unavailable in my my country (even though I don't remember selecting anything like that).  Is this a fairly common occurance and if so how do I fix it?

Hey @dean_brendan,

 

Thanks for reaching out.


Are you talking about the track named 'Friends'? The song is available on my end and it should be available worldwide 🙂

 

Is it still greyed out for you? If so, can you please post a screenshot and let me know in which country you're located?

Yeah, it's Friends.  It's good to hear that it is being recieved on your end 🙂

 

And yeah I'm on desktop in the US (where I published from) and it is still displaying as unavailable.  Not sure if this is just a weird glitch or if I did something wrong.  Or maybe my computer sucks lol.

Have you tried listening to the track on Spotify on a different device yet?

It appears to be doing fine now, I've been checking it each day on both my phone and my computer and today it was fixed.
