My Question or Issue

If I try to import an 18-minute local song using my Mac Spotify client, it appears as 0:01 length. This causes an issue when syncing the songs across devices.

 

This does not happen on Windows.

Same: Only Skin (a 17 minute song by Joanna Newsom, who is not a Spotify artist) never scrobbles for me via last.fm. It also shows up as 0:01 in Spotify. I'm using Spotify desktop on OSX (Mohave 10.14.4) using a 2017 MacBook Air.

Update: Apparently now local files 15+ minutes long don't even play on Spotify. They appear grayed out.
