How to remove artists from Spotify

Newbie
I know this maybe a stupid question to ask but how do you remove an artist from your artist page in the your music section. I just listened to a song and it added the artist to my artist and I'm not even following them.

Make sure you haven't saved any of their songs or albums

 

On Android tap the 3 dots next to the song and tap "remove"

 

You can also go to the "song" section in "Your Music" and remove it from there.

The question was how to remove an artist, not a song. I have too many songs by an artist to efficiently remove individual songs one at a time.

I have the same problem. I would like to set artist to never be heard again.
Will I have to dislike every song in every album to not hear it again? Future songs?

Hey @Botulf,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

Do you still experience what @kendra134 reported if you try logging out and then back in to you account or if you try using Spotify with a different internet connection? It'd be also good to try a quick app reinstall to see if what you reported gets fixed.

 

Furthermore, if you confirmed you're not following the artist, would you mind double-checking whether they're part of your Recommended Artists list? Asking since this list is also included in Artists (Your Library) and there's a chance the suggestions featured in it might be seen as the artists you're currently following.

 

Regarding your question, you can access your account with the mobile app to tap on the three dots menu in an artist's page and then tap on Don't play this artist if you'd like to block them.

 

Let us know how you get on. We'll look out for your reply!
