Is there a way to trim tracks or cut "hidden" tracks from the ends of songs?

Is there a way to trim tracks or cut "hidden" tracks from the ends of songs?

Several bands that I listen to have songs the contain "hidden" tracks. I dislike ending up with several minutes of silence while listening to music while working, and I'd love to have a way to "cut" the silence out of these songs or to just trim the track and skip the hidden songs all together.


When I managed my own library of mp3s I would just cut the silence manually using Audacity. Any chance we can do this within spotify?

This is unfortunately not possible for streamed songs from Spotify. You would need to import a local (trimmed) mp3 to Spotify.

However, there exists already an idea about it in our ideas exchange here.
Please add your kudos and comments there. 😉

It's crazy to me that Spotify hasn't designed in this functionality.  I cannot see how editing tracks by snipping sections (slowly building beginning intros, terrible dead space dividing one track and a "hidden" track, or a outro).  Couldn't be a violation of DRM, as the artist would still get credit for a track played.  Get er done, Spotify!

This!!! ^^^^^^
