Album art missing from notifications

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Yeah I've noticed this issue too - it looks like the URL returned by MPRIS is no longer valid.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<song ID> . Looking at the web inspector, it seems like<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 (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 ...

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
