Couldn't find song/artist

Casual Listener

Hey guys, I am not able to find any songs by Led Zeppelin or I must say when I search for led zeppelin it doesn't show me any songs and when I search for a particular song "Homesick by Dua Lips", I am not even able to find that as well.

 

Kindly help regarding the same.

 

PS :- I am using premium version of spotify on Android 7.0 device.

Hello @AbhishekS ,

Thanks for reaching out to the community!


Spotify would love to have all the world’s music available to everyone. However, its availability can vary over time and between countries, depending on the permissions from rights holders.

The good news is: Spotify adds new content every day, so if you can’t find something you’re looking for right now, it may appear (or reappear) soon, so please check back! 

 

Go to Spotify settings and enable "Show unplayable songs"

You can see the difference once that's enabled. I've attached a few screenshots to help you out.

Hope this helps!

🙂

I really appreciate your help.

I would like to add that I am using spotify in India and the same artist/song is available on my friend's account, I didn't raise any topic before I saw the same on my friend's account.

And, as you asked to turn on "show unplayable songs" i did it and didn't notice any difference.

Okay, that was about the song homesick by dua lipa but what about the songs by Led Zeppelin?

Hello again @AbhishekS ,

I too am an Indian user of Spotify.

 

Your friend must be using a VPN to change his location or maybe even using an unauthorized version of Spotify. Both of which is not recommended and can get you banned. You see, certain songs are currently unavailable in India due to licensing issues which, will soon be sorted out and you'll have access to all the songs you'll ever want! 

And I suggest you don't resort to any of the above means as it violates Spotify's policies.

 

Patience is key my friend,

Hope this helps

🙂

I appreciate your help again.

I don't know whether he is using VPN or a cracked APK of the app but I was
never into all these things and that is the only reason I am subscribed to
spotify and I just read a comment on one of spotifyindia's Instagram post,
the user said that all of warner music group's title are missing and won't
be available anytime soon due to a lawsuit.

But, I am hoping for the best and will see if anything changes till next
month, if not, I will cancel the subscription and will discontinue using
spotify until things settle down.

Cheers man!! Really appreciate your help. Have a good one.
