My Question or Issue

The album art is missing from the notifications on the desktop. This issue started randomly while using GNOME 3.34 and has persisted into GNOME 3.36. I couldn't pick up and errors at all from the client.

Yeah I've noticed this issue too - it looks like the URL returned by MPRIS is no longer valid.

I'm experiencing the same issue. The URL currently reported by MPRIS looks like https://open.spotify.com/image/<song ID> . Looking at the web inspector, it seems like https://i.scdn.co/image/<song ID> is the correct URL.

For me (Lubuntu 20.04 / LXQt) it shows all the wrong album art in the notifications (doesn't match the client).

I am missing the artwork in the notification too. Here's a screenshot.

It's been happening for a long while.
Info: kernel 5.8.5-arch1-1, Gnome 3.36.5-1, Spotify 1.1.10.546.ge08ef575 (premium)

is there any quick fix for this??

Have had this same issue for about a year. On Elementary OS Hera 5.1.7 and now on Fedora 33 using Gnome 3.38.5.

Any suggestions?

It's a known bug for a longer time https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Linux/MPRIS-cover-art-url-file-not-found/td-p/4920104 ...

Spotify provides wrong URL for cover art... I don't know if they ever plan to fix it...

Hey guys,
the issue is fixed for me in the Spotify client version 1.1.67
