This recent update is really ruining my playlists by linking completely different files on my computer to albums that I am trying to stream.
For instance, Babymetal's Red Night album. If you look at the picture I attached, every single one of the songs on Black Night where the artist name of Babymetal is white instead of grey has been linked to Red Night, even though they are completely different versions of the songs. When I am trying to play a Red Night track, instead of playing the Red Night track, it just says it is and plays the linked Black Night track instead as if I can't notice a difference. So, essentially, despite the fact that I am paying the premium fee, nearly the entire Red Night album is unavailable to me because I have completely different local files being linked to it. This is completely asinine. There used to be an absolutely necessary feature in which you could rightclick on a song and select an option to unlink it from a local file. This needs to be brought back immediately.

We don't have any plans to implement this.
A "confusing" part may be that this linking still works for older local files. Meaning that if you imported them while we had local file linking, then they will remain linked.
If you want to remove your local file links, a workaround would be to remove and reinstall the app. This way your local files will stay, in playlists and such, but they will no longer be linked.
