Clearing the prefs file as suggested by @hvarday does the trick. Simple.

 

Spotify ought to know this. There are sooo many threads out there with this issue.

 

Clearing the prefs file is a simple solution.

glad it worked for you guys...

 

i tried this as well (again and again) - along with multiple clean installs, disabling hardware acceleration, and even some terminal tweaking (i forget the exact command; found it on one of these forums, didn't help).

 

if anything, the problem seems to have gotten worse - sometimes the screen goes black before i can even start playing music.

 

this is frustrating af. can't believe the company still hasn't fixed the problem after friggin' YEARS!
