Saw this thread while searching for "band incorrectly labeled as 'explicit'" I've been listening to the Darrell Mansfield Band and now find that their music is listed as explicit. Not sure how "Walk with me Jesus" or "People Get Ready" is now explicit...
There are some notes along the way in the forums that say that perhaps the source is marking them that way - but I'm not sure how to find that information.
We petitioned a long time ago for the Christian genre to be restored in New Zealand and some other countries. It was eventually restored by Spotify and is still there. You don’t need to search for it ... it should appear in the list of Genres when you Search (just select Browse All). Hope this helps 🙂
What's ridiculous is, the rainbow should be on the Christian genre cover art and the word, "Pride" should be used on cover art for U.S. themed playlists, but they're used to push something else. As Christians, ya'll know what the rainbow really represents.
Well, I had a playlist for the Klezmonauts Oy to the World - Xmas carols in klezmer style, and I just discovered it has been deleted. Wondered if it was censored ans non-christian. Now seeing this thread I wonder. I sent a message to Spotify yesterday and got back an automatic response promising a reply. We'll see.
We understand it is still available in some territories but not in Australia, New Zealand and some other places. A change.org petition was started some months ago but in spite of 100s of votes still no movement or clear explanation from Spotify. Can’t understand why something so easy and with widespread community support is so difficult to restore! Spotify - please listen to this community!
Something I also hated with Spotify, is it was rather hard to find types of Christian music. And, when do you find some songs, playlist, to listen to while doing your work or like, once played out, it inevitably goes to some other songs from mainstream music that'd you'd not care to listen to. Read the signs a bit better of what people are listening to and queue a songs accordingly (perhaps they are and just like trying being annoying). This is why I've turned to YouTube more and more and just my own music collection, Spotify has failed me so...
