Add an album

Went to add a song called "Hammer Back" by Blue Oyster Cult, and found that this album--or any cut on it--is not available.  This is quite surprising as many cult fans view this album as one of their best.  I'm sure, though, there's a good reason for it

Hey @Jaxpal, thanks for coming to the Spotify Community!

 

Missing or unavailable music is almost always a decision by the artist/label to withhold the content from Spotify. Sometimes it's temporarily unavailable while they sort out legal issues or correct metadata, in which case it'll be back up as soon as they resubmit it to Spotify. While it might be a good idea to contact the artist or label directly and ask why the music isn't on Spotify, you can also fill out this form to let Spotify staff know of your interest. You might also be interested in supporting this idea, which suggests a simpler method for requesting albums missing from Spotify.

Please let me know if I can help with anything else! Happy listening 🙂
