Local Songs name with non-alphabetics characters are not detected

Local Songs name with non-alphabetics characters are not detected

I always listen my local musics on Spotify and I don't know why but overnight there was an update or something else that modified the local songs detection.
I was testing why some songs was detected and some not, and I finally found that non-alphabetics characters or maybe only japaneses characters do that a song will not be detected by the system.
So I have to modify all my musics name to remove japanese characters of it.
Why Spotify ?!

There's an ongoing thread on the subject over here --> https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Local-files-broken-again/td-p/5071755
A few of us just rolled back to a previous version and locked the app from updating again. F<3ck this noise.
