My Question or Issue

I was previously running a version of spotify prior to the UI refresh trying to avoid it, but recently updated to the latest version. Consistently over the past couple weeks, spotify steadily consumes more memory at a constant rate, even when idling. for some metrics, after an 8 Hour session of completely idle usage (No playback or search), spotify had consumed 23GiB of the available 32.
