Deleted songs on Spotify


Deleted songs on Spotify


Like many spotify users I put all of my music into my own spotify playlists.
Now I would like to make this as a replacement for all my mp3 files on my computer, so I only have my spotify account. (and delete all my mp3 files)
But what happens when spotify deletes a song, artist or playlist? Do we now it or will the song just dissapear from our own personal playlist? 
I don't want to loose any titles or names of songs, but I don't know how spotify works here?
Thanks already!

Hey @kim91 , welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!


Users don't get notified when a song is removed but you can see that it's not available when they're greyed out and if you have Show Unplayable songs in Settings.


You should know that Spotify would love to have all the world’s music available to everyone. However, some artists and tracks aren't currently available.

I'd recommend reading this article for more info.


There's also an idea about users getting notified when a song is removed so I'd recommend giving your support and following this thread for future updates if you'd like that feature.

Hope this helps!
