Why doesn't spotify have new songs????

Why does It take so long for spotifuggle to update their music. For example they wont get "I Knew You Were Trouble" for at least 1 month now. It has good music but It needs to work on newer individual songs more so people can listen to them quicker.

Probably the same reason you don't see movies show up in Netflix or Amazon right away, the music industry wants to make as much money as they can through actual physical sales before they start to allow streaming services access to the music. Record labels and artists likely make far less money off of streaming than they do from selling CDs.

How come Spotify doesn't have some older music? I'm searching for some Peter Gabriel songs. I can get to one album but half the songs don't have the "play" button. Others don't show up anywhere, like anything from the Security album, like "Lay your hands on me".

Most of the music we have on Spotify results from record companies paying spotify or vice-versa to be able to host their songs, although I think it's mostly spotify paying the record companies. Therefore, you might not have all the music you want immediately.
