I had a similar problem. Not only unknown songs would appear on my recently played but they would actually play at any given time, even what I was listening to would stop and these unwanted and unrelated songs would start playing.

 

After testing and being unable to find a real solution (and trying useless password resets and closing session on other devices) I believe I found my own.

 

Disconnected my account from Facebook and the problem seems to be resolved.

This is clearly a problem of some sort, hope developers are able to figure things out from this. Wether it's an actual problem or intentional.

JUST to avoid any doubt out there in Spotify HQ -

-- This may have several reasons; the account is being used somewhere else, --- if you mean my account is being used by someone I know at a different location, no. If you mean someone unknown has hijacked mulitple spotify accounts and keeps playing the same RUBBISH unknown songs on everyones playlist then maybe.

-- the account was used during a gathering - it may have been, and I would have been in control of it, but what would not have happened is under any circumstances would the shite music that keeps appearing have been played.

 

Reset your password on your Spotify account. - I HAVE DONE THIS FOUR TIMES (over a period of a month)

* Reset your password on the email address registered on your account. - I HAVE DONE THIS FOUR TIMES

* Log out everywhere - I HAVE DONE THIS FOUR TIMES (over a period of a month)

* Send us the URI's of the unfamiliar playlists and albums that are displayed that match the original poster's. - The original poster screen shotted the offending songs and described them very clearly. I also screen shotted them. I have listed some below just to help you anyway.

I listen on my imac spotify version 1.0.96.181.gf6bc1b6b OS Mojave 10.14.1. Also listen on  sony xperia - version 8. 4. 84. I log in using a FACEBOOK ACCOUNT. I would have cancelled my Spotify account and created a new one by now, if I had not just activated a student discount, if I cancel you will not honour the discount on the new account until the cancelled accounts discount has expired.  

 

And for those that have trouble reading --- I HAVE CHANGED MY PASSWORD --- MANY TIMES. ALMOST TO THE POINT I CAN'T REMEMBER IT.

 

Here's a short list of some of the dodgy tracks URls: (by the way I HATE RAP and HIP HOP)

spotify:album:1lNDl0U2pSXv9v2BWBehca (Khaled Beats - Professional Sounds)

spotify:album:3nbOrtjXP6VbqSQryL14hX  (Hood Tales - HIp Hop Rap 

Beats)

spotify:album:3LRW1qkfnmQ4RkeCPgsXBx (Freestyle Battle - Agressive Beats)

spotify:album:0WOD1PqHoPb6eLlAD9Wpjy (Friends Fantasy - Electronic Beat Boyz)

spotify:album:56A3nC52o3X5gSaIDdVcKj (Mantra - Brahma)

spotify:album:7DjXvUPEZPwwxMAyuJ9ZEd (Fantasy Dream Beats - The Drum Beats Boys)

There have been many others.

This happened to me too a week or two ago! I specifically remember "Funky Freestyle Beats" being played. I woke up one day and it was being played on the Spotify Web Player (which I never use). I immediately signed out on all devices and changed my password.

Kind of the same as the above user, BUT the music fits my taste. I have a play list I've labeled Best of the Best...I travel A LOT so this is what I listen to on the plane. However, when I'm on the ground it will select songs by artists I have in the play list but aren't currently in this playlist. Or it just recently selected Tom Petty, great Southern Rocker, BUT, not anywhere in my "Best of the Best"....not even close actually. How come I'm getting Petty and not Greg Allman, or Kenny Wayne Shepard. Right now it just started with Eddie Money....no way shape or form does he fit into this playlist.....I'M VERY CONFUSED.

I've had something very similar happen. I was listening to a playlist and I closed out Spotify and went to bed. You can imagine the scare I got when very LOUDLY a random playlist started playing from my phone through my Google Speaker. I have no idea what this band/playlist is, I have never searched it, never even heard of it. Yet it randomly starts playing without any prompt to do so. I also found that I was some how following this playlist though I had never heard it before. I unfollowed it but it was already listed on my "Heavy rotation" and "Recently Played". I have changed my password, verified that the only places I was logged in was my personal computer (only I have access to it) and my phone.

I thought the problem had gone away for the most part... but nope. I just logged into my spotify and there it is listed in my recently played and listed AFTER the playlist I was listening to this morning.

No one else has access to my account, no one else has a device on it, and no one else has used my account.

 

If you will not fix this issue where accounts are some how making us listen and follow them then at least give us the ability to block/remove accounts and playlists.

 

My issue has been with 2k18 and YSQUAR3 - both have the same music both are recently created playlists and BOTH I have never searched or heard of!!

its been three weeks and im just not going to use spotify after my premium subscription runs out this moth, im waisting my money with this annoying occurance that seems to get the same responce from you guys saying reset password blah blah blaah, as you can see several people follow your steps exactly many times (i have at least 10 times) and it fixes nothing. the recently played on all my devices just gets filled to the brim with bad muisc so i cant even find what i was listening to the day before and thats a huge issue when im paying for my own account. stop pushing this matter under the rug and fix it
