No A$AP Rocky album?

Now you know it wouldn't be album release Tuesday without me pointing out that there is a major album missing on Spotify. A$AP Rocky "Long.Live.A$AP" Where is it? And don't send me a link to the FAQ's section on why some albums are missing. Make It Happen!

 

Other than that, great job!

No new albums seem to be up yet from today.  It is probably just delayed.

When an album is released, it takes about a day to fully show up in search and discography.

 

Sometimes clicking on a new track that is "unavailable" will activate and play once it figures out it just came out.

 

As for the albums not on Spotify that you want:

 

There are a few reasons why the song/album you want is not on Spotify.

 

Not every album or song is available on Spotify. Some artists and music labels choose not to release to Spotify.

 

Sometimes a music label will delay the release to Spotify.

 

The only thing Spotify does is upload the music that is sent to them. You can find out why some songs/artists are not on Spotify over here.

 

Some music labels only release to certain countries while blocking the release from the rest.


It's all about who owns the rights to the music and where they want it released to.

Music would be better if labels didn't do this, but sadly this is how the music business works.

Thanks for the comment.  I am a premium subscriber.  While I cannot find it in search on mobile I can see the album at this link:  http://open.spotify.com/album/1E1eyI5uGllppJZCxNoF9w which is great except I can't play any of the songs.

You're right! It's up now. 

 

Sorry Spotify I jumped the gun on this one. But you should really put it up A$AP (no pun).

 

Still waiting on Ri Ri and Tay Tay...

This is not solved.  You cannot find the album when searching on mobile and when I manually go to the link via the spotify website the tracks are listed as unavailable.

Are you a premium subscriber? If not, that could be it. If you are, I don't know why you can't see it. It's definitely there.

You're welcome! 😃

 

If you still cannot play the tracks, then the artist/music label has delayed the release for a later date, or they made the release available to certain countries. (they usually release to more as time goes on depending on their music sales)
