Hi @jrecursive,


Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community, and welcome!


I noticed that this track plays only static noise as well, both on Spotify and on YouTube. Since this issue seems to occur on multiple streaming platforms, it’s likely that the artist will need to resolve the issue from their end.


I suggest contacting the artist (e.g. on social media) to let them know about this issue; hopefully they’ll add a fixed version of “Spirit Quest” to Spotify soon.


Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!
