Hey @zbononcini.

 

Thanks for getting in touch!

 

Could you try a quick reinstallation? If that didn't work, try to remove Spotify from your Host file? Here's how:

 

  1. Open Finder and, in Finder’s menu bar, select Go > Go to Folder. In the box, type the following location: /private/etc/hosts and press return.
  2. A new Finder window will open and your Mac’s hosts file will be selected. Click and drag it out of the Finder window and drop it on your desktop. 
  3. To open it, simply double-click and it will display the file’s contents in TextEdit .
  4. Check for any entries with Spotify in the address.
  5. If you do find any lines with Spotify, please remove them
  6. Save your changes and restart Spotify.

Hope this solves the issue. Let us know how it goes.

 

Have a nice day!

Any idea what songs they are? Are they locally added songs or not?

Nope, they are songs either in the recommended or when I search. For example, "Electric Feel" by MGMT has this problem.

In fact, I just realized every song I don't have is unavailable or has no content. I already tried uninstalling and installing again.
