Hey @Mimi5278,


The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artists and their music label.


If the music is gone, the artist or their music label has likely decided to remove it from Spotify. 


Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others.


Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later.


Hopefully it will come back later.

So why would Spotify remove almost 3/4 of my playlist?  That's the question I want to know.  It wouldn't be such a big issue if there was a way to backup the playlist songs.  Now I have no idea what I've lost.  Thanks for that frustration.

The Spotify desktop app and mobile apps have a setting to show unavailable tracks in playlists for when music becomes unavailable. I use it often as a guide to check back later with artists when their music has gone missing, as music on Spotify tends to have licenses and these are renewed often and content comes back.


Just go to your user image on the Spotify desktop app upper right hand of the app, click on the pull down tab, click on settings, scroll down to Display Options, Show unavailable songs in playlists.

Why do you have the Album but not all songs on the Album

Re: WHY do you keep removing songs???


I hate that you remove music, if we have it in our playlist and we already have a membership, let us keep the music but for everyone else, remove it

Exactly... Why are certain songs from an album missing if the rest of the album is there?
For instance a few songs from the band RED's album "Innocence & Instinct" are missing. Namely: "Intro (Canto III)," "Out From Under," "Overtake You," and "Nothing and Everything" all stick out to me as omissions from Spotify's catalog

I feel you

Re: WHY do you keep removing songs???


Recently i've discovered that a song has been removed from Spotify, but just a single song, there is still plenty of songs from the same artist available, can anyone shed some light as to why this happened?


The song in question is "Diamonds" by The Boxer Rebellion. https://play.spotify.com/track/7oOVGPwNmB8JVoBhWlTdht?play=true&utm_source=open.spotify.com&utm_medi...


Edit: It seems the whole album this song was on has been removed, "Promises".
