macOS High Sierra v10.13.6
Play/pause/skip track buttons on keyboard no longer working.
- Tried re-starting machine already.
- Tried re-starting app.
- Tried plugging/unplugging keyboard.
- Media keys function with other apps (Keynote, iTunes, etc).
- Aforementioned apps not open while using Spotify.

I had the some problem and after digging in for some time, I found a solution that worked for me. Google Chrome was 'hijacking' my media keys with the Google Play Music extension. Deleting or disabling this resolved the issue for me.
More information about the solution can be found here.
Hope this helps somebody else.
