Album Wallpaper Does not Dissapear - Even after closing App

Album Wallpaper Does not Dissapear - Even after closing App



The lockscreen wallpaper shows the album cover, even after I close the Spotify App. (When I do close the app, the album cover dissapears, but upon waking phone again, it returns.)


I have Nexus 5 Running latest version of Lollipop. (5.0.1.)

I have latest version of Spotify App. Just updated two days ago.


Is there a way to not have a persistant album wallpaer AFTER closing app?  (I know it is an android feature WHILE app is on, but it should NOT be showing album when APP IS CLOSED.)


Is there a fix that does not involve restarting the phone?


Does anyone else have this issue? Thank you!

Hmmm, you can Force Close the Spotify app. However that's a work-around. Please read the guide linked below for details on the most common issues and how to fix them. Usually a clean install is the first step to take and resolves most of the usual issues; the guide details the steps to take to ensure a full 'clean installation' is achieved - This includes checking redundant folders and a REBOOT!
