Good day - 

 

Trying Spotify for the first time, and the very first album I want to listen to I get the error message: Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it." Doesn't bode well for me continuing with Spotify right off the bat... 

 

I have searched for solutions and advice to this, but none of it solves the problem. 

Thanks for advice.

Hey @mswpta! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

Are these songs greyed out? If yes, they might be not available in your country because of licensing changes. 

 

Let me know how it goes! ^^

Peace

Hi Nico - 

 

Thanks for reply. Indeed I see now that tracks appeared greyed. The music on the album is South African and I am in South Africa... It makes no sense why this is greyed out. How disappointing. 

 

Cheers

Hey @mswpta!

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

It is depending on the permissions from rights holders.
Hopefully, they will be available again soon. ^^

 

Peace
