why is spotify playing songs i dont pick self, and add playlists i have never heard of?

why is spotify playing songs i dont pick self, and add playlists i have never heard of?

spotify is suddendly acting like its broken, it has been for the past 5-6 days. It has started playing songs out of nowhere, if the app is running in backround but nothing playing, suddenly without any contact to the phone (It has been laying in my bedroom and there is suddenly some music I have never heard of playing) and often after theese incidents the app seems to save the playlist to my playlist list. other times i am just playing my regular playlist and it changes mid song to some other song I have never heard before. I have tried unlinking my account to facebook, cleared cache, deleted the app, restarted my phone, update, changed my password and it just keeps going. It not only happens in my phone but also in my computer. i hope you have some answers for me 🙂 - Harpaf
