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

As of version 8.8.20.544 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.

Hello,

 

I wanted to ask: why does Lana del Rey's album 'did you know that there's a tunnel under ocean boulevard' show no lyrics? When the album first came out, there were lyrics for every song. Shortly after, the lyrics disappeared and stopped showing for all the songs on the album. 

 

I would love for Spotify to bring them back again because Lana's lyrics are genuinely good, and I love reading them side by side while listening to the songs. 

Thanks in advance!

I would also like to know why and I miss it a lot.

My Question or Issue

Yesterday, for some reason, the lyrics just decided to straight up not show up on any song. I tried uninstalling the app from the Pop!_Shop and decided to install via apt, but the issue remains.
And to demonstrate it, I took a screen shot of one song that I know for sure it used to have it's lyrics perfectly synced and matched but stopped working.
Is the problem related to the fact that I'm using the free version?

Recently the lyrics has stopped appearing. The reason is unknown. Please try fixing this because it says lyrics is a premium feature but in the premium plans I do not see the lyrics as part of the plan.

 

Also why has the lyrics been removed from the free plan? This is highly disappointing for many users.

 

 

I have tried troubleshooting multiple times by restarting, redownloading, checking my internet, and my mac won't allow me to turn on/off offline mode. Please help.

My friends don't have the same issues even though we are playing the same songs. I also don't have an option for off

My Question or Issue

I have been using sportify for 2 years, and this never happened. From yesterday, most of my song's lyrics said that it couldn’t load the lyrics for this song. Is it the problem in samsung? I am using the latest version, and I tried logging out and reinstalling the app. I need help as soon as possible. Can you help me?

Hey there @vivi-,

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this here in the Community. 

 

Just to confirm, is this only happening on your Mac or on other devices as well? 

 

If this only happens on your PC, it's well worth running a clean reinstall of the app to get rid of any cached files that might be causing trouble. 

 

If this doesn't do the trick, could you give a different internet connection a go to see if that makes the difference?

 

Let us know how it goes.

Hey there! Thanks for bringing this up, and welcome to the Spotify Community!

Can you please let us know if you are on a Premium or a Free service? Also, is this happening no matter what track you play?

Keep me posted.

My Question or Issue

Some of the lyrics in songs just disappeared. I tried to log in and out, reinstall the app and nothing changed🥲🤷🏼‍♀️

I’ve also done the same and have been having this issue!!! Almost every song says “couldn’t load lyrics”, only a few don’t. I’m using the free version, please help fix this!

My Question or Issue

The lyrics for some songs were working but now they don't and it says you caught us we are still working on this or you'll have to guess the lyrics for this song but for my friends it shows the lyrics are working for the same song and i tried everything from a clean reinstall to completely wiping my pc and still doesn't work and checked if i have the latest version or not

Im on free service and yes this is happening no matter what track i play!

Hey @Yunji,

 

Thanks for posting in the Community.

The availability of these features 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.

 

Hope this clears things a bit.

 

Cheers!
