[Linux] Spotify Cannot Play Local Files

Newbie

I am on elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki 64 bit, which is built on Built on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

I cannot play local files when I try to I get the message "this song is not avialable if  you have this file on your computer you can import it" as shown on the screenshot.

I have tried many things if someone could give me a hand that would be great.

Same problem here on Ubuntu 17.04 and 17.10.

I tried following steps I found for other platforms (delete local-files.bnk for example) but it did nothing.

 

It also stops me from streaming the same song from the artist's page rather than the Local Files section.

How are the permissions set to the files and the spotify client?
