It's great to hear music as the artist intended it to be heard, this means Spotify can sometimes include explicit content.
 
We recommend looking out for the EXPLICIT tag on any releases (E on the web player).
Note: Our explicit content tags are applied based on information we receive from rights-holders. This means we can’t guarantee all explicit content is marked as such. 



Explicit content filter 

For: Mobile and tablet (more devices coming soon!)

Filter out content labelled as explicit with these steps:

  1. Tap Home .
    Got Premium? Tap Your Library .
  2. Tap Settings .
  3. Tap Explicit Content.
  4. Switch Allow Explicit Content off (gray).
  5. Tracks marked as explicit now appear grayed out. It’s not possible to play them and they are skipped over by the player.

Things to note about this setting:

  • It applies only for the individual account and device. For example, if you apply the setting on your phone, it doesn't filter explicit content for the same account on the desktop app.
  • It doesn’t apply if you use Spotify Connect to play to another device.


Remember:
 Content we identify as explicit is based on information we receive from rights-holders, so we can’t guarantee that no explicit content will play with this setting. If you spot a song that needs an explicit tag, let us know by tapping  next to the song and select Report Explicit Content

For full information on this, and for more on finding clean versions we'd recommend check this Support article.

This is very helpful but if you don't have spotify premium then just listen to the songs that don't have cursing in them if you dont like the swearing
