Howard Shore songs not playable


Howard Shore songs not playable

Casual Listener



I am from Sweden and have been able to listen for Howard Shores Lord of the Rings songs for a long time, I noticed recently that I am not able to listen to these songs anymore but I am still able to see them as if they were available.


They are still available in my playlists and are searchable for me.

They aren't greyed out but are white as all other playable songs for me.


Is this due to his music not being available anymore on spotify or for swedish spotify users? If that is the case why am I still able to see it and why isn't it greyed out in my playlists?

Hey there,


Try reinstalling the Spotify app, it may fix the issue, you can see a guide here.


If that doesn't work, please check if the same thing happens on another device.


Thanks! :)
