Lockscreen and notification bar controls not showing up

I'm running Spotify on a nexus 6 with android 6.0.1 with latest security updates. For the last two weeks now the notification bar and lockscreen controls won't come up. At first I thought I might have blocked it from the lock screen but the app permissions are all normal. This seems to have been doing this since the last update. Anyone else have this issue?

I solved the issue on my Galaxy S7 by allowing the Spotify app access to my files, microphone, camera etc. 

 

After that it reappeared on my lockscreen. Subsequently, I disabled access to aforementioned apps and the control panel remained.

 

Perhaps a bug since a previous update.
