Same problem here. First time I saw this is more than a year ago. Happens from time to time. Usually the entire album is in Japanese when I tap on a Japanese song and choose to view the album.

The attached sreenshots shows my latest discover weekly and screenshots of the albums from which the songs are played.

I just noticed that when I play the Japanese titled songs from Journey and W.E.T on Chromecast, it shows the titles in English.

Same thing in every possible spotify client: Android, Windows, Linux and web.

I now realized that there are multiple versions of such albums, provided by different records corporations. One of them appear in Japanese, the other in English.

 

Isn't there any way to filter out the Japanese versions out of non-Japanese speaker's line of sight? I want to know what I'm listening to (which is recommended by weekly discovery list).

So, rather than being an issue with Spotify, it's possible it's an issue downstream? If these artists or labels are using Tunecore or CDBaby, it could be a problem there? 

 

Entirely theory, but if one of these services has been doing any work in the Japanese market, and have **bleep** up their own album/track naming conventions, and Spotify just does as it's told, it could come from there? 

 

As for the issue itself, I've noticed it for months now. As the underlying metadata is the same, it's not affected searches or anything - just looks a bit odd when the track is playing. Particularly on that high quality flagship product, the Xbox player ;-)
