"Connecting to Spotify" notification won't go away. Why?

The past week or so ive started getting a "connecting to Spotify" notification seemingly at random that will absolutely not go away. It appears when I'm not even using the app and it's not even running in the background. All my notifications for everything are set to off, the only way I can clear it is to block app notifications from my android settings which is not practical as this means I can't use the notification tray player widget. I can't express how annoying it is to have this constant notification in my tray, im on the verge of just cancelling Spotify and signing up for Deezer, but I'd really rather not do that if anyone can tell me how to fix this. Many thanks.

Just as an FYI, this issue has not been resolved permanently. Many are still experiencing it on the most current release, myself included.

I am still getting the same issue. 

 

I have cleared cached and storage data and uninstall/re-installed.

 

The "Connecting to Spotify" notification still comes up after a few hours.

 

This bug is annoying and it appears to have been an issue for more than year.  wth?

I'm having this issue as well.  Did all the suggestions, deleted cache and data, uninstalled and reinstalled (which is a pain as then you lose all your downloaded songs), redownloaded all my songs only to see the notification flashing there again this morning.

I have the exact same issue and the solution provided did not solve it.  Have cleared cache and done a fresh install, neither worked.
