Why am I seeing an old song on my release radar?

Chance's '5 Year Plan' off of 'The Big Day' popped up on my Release Radar today. This song came out over 6 months ago and I even listened to the full album (unfortunately) once through when it came out.

 

How is this song popping up on my Release Radar now? All the other songs seem much more recent and are at least from 2020. Is there a trick artists can play to get their old songs on Release Radar or is this a bug?

Good question, although I wouldn't call 'old' something released 6 months ago.

 

Sometimes songs are released as singles, and could end up as 'new release'. Other times, I've seen songs from re-released albums popup in my Release Radar too, which I wouldn't call 'new'. 🙂

I don't think something 6 months old should pop up in 'Release Radar'. Usually these songs are extremely new releases, within days or weeks. I constantly listen to all the new releases in my release radar and expect this playlist to update when there are NEW releases, not albums I've already listened through.

To my knowledge this isn't a "re-released album" as the posting date remains July 26, 2019 and all the songs were released on this date. Maybe this forum is the wrong place to post a bug of this variety.

Hey @sabard,

 

We appreciate your concern about this.

 

If there are recommendations in your Release Radar which you think aren't quite right, make sure to use the 'Hide this song' button. This will help Spotify make more accurate recommendations going forward.

 

If you continue to see song recommendations in your Release Radar which you think do not belong there, let us know and we'll see what we can suggest next.

 

Thanks!
