"Couldn't load the lyrics for this song" error in 2023

"Couldn't load the lyrics for this song" error in 2023

As of version and the version prior to that has caused the lyrics from my personal playlist in my device 'Samsung-SMJ250F' to disappear, at first I thought it was brcause the songs were old but way older songs still had lyrics
The playlist is a private playlist featuring all songs of 'DragonForce'
and after the update none of the songs had lyrics.

Hey folks,


Thanks for posting about this here in the Community.


Please note that the availability of the Lyrics feature and the lyrics themselves can vary over time, as well as between markets, and depending on the agreements we have in place with our rights holders. We add new content to Spotify every day, so if you can’t find something right now, it may appear (or reappear) soon.


We hope this helps!

Ikkk Arctic Monkeys songs don't show lyrics anymore 

Hello, Tevatron!


The problem, illustrated below means that the lyrics might have been recently uploaded by the artist, meaning that it takes time for lyrics to be distributed/synced in the app. If it was a while, try to restart the app and start the song again after another random song. 

Let me know if it helps!

I've got the similar messages to the ones already stated in these replies , I'm wondering if we can go back to the version before it changed , because for some people , the constantly use Spotify lyrics (include myself- Lewis Capaldi And 5 seconds of summer are amazing btw) and for that option to not be available it does defeat a big purpose of why Spotify has become so popular, we need this update to be fixed , because its still a problem in 2024, at least for me 😞

This is another reason why I left Spotify years ago. They do what they want i.e. just remove existing lyrics whenever they please and then try to shift the blame. Markets and whatnot it may reappear if you are lucky. Thanks Spotify.


this has been happening for 5 months ago until rn and it still unavailable to see through the lyrics

padahal seharusnya itu ada lirik dari lagu yang selalu yang saya dengarkan, ngga harus premium kan buat nampilin lirik? kecewa sih kalo ngga bisa tampilin liriknya, di lagu nya itu tertera kok kalo seharusnya ada liriknya, tapi Spotify nya malah 'kami tidak bisa memproses lirik' selaluuuu gitu, tolong ya bantu kali ini

i dont know why this is happening . can this be fixed ?

almost all of the songs have the same problem:i can't see the lyrics,I've tried logging out and back in but it's not working

Same with me. No lyrics at the TV, it works at the phone. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall but didn't work. 

that why

i have tried everything you have said in your site and it's not about "songs that don't have lyrics yet" because some songs did before and now they don't

just know the song

please add lyrics too passionfruit 

У многих песен не отображается текст, пишет не удалось загрузить текст песен. Пробовал очищать кэш, переустанавливать и тд

I'm encountering an issue with my Spotify desktop app where the lyrics are not displaying. I've tried restarting the app and ensuring a stable internet connection to no avail. Could you please assist in resolving this?

My Question or Issue

For the past few weeks, lyrics of most songs have just disappeared, and thr box just shows "Couldn't load the lyrics for this song." I thought that they probably removed the feature for free users, but that wasn't mentioned anywhere and lyrics still show up for select few songs.Anyone knows why this is happening, and when will it be fixed?.This is happening, on my PC and iPad too, so it isn't just an android issue


I really don't know why the lyrics on some songs were deleted, I used to listen those song but seems it got deleted with the last updates and I'm VERY well disagree with that, so please, I'd like you to put them back cause the lyrics option was very essencial for spotify users

My songs always say “couldn’t load the lyrics for this song” i’m going to stop listening to spotify the only reason i was using it was for the wrapped but now it’s just terrible insane adds every song no lyrics for songs bad song quality i’m just done please fix your lyrics problem and actually make adds every 30 minutes instead of every song
