Edited post. I'm so sorry, forgot the most important thing.
Auto update was active and no update on ms store.

I have same experience and suspect thte issue is related to the ads, they might differ from different languages. If I minimize the app the CPU goes from 20% to 0,4% on my system. Typically if the ads are made with bad coded javascript they will take a lot of cpu. When you minimize the window JS is halted and the CPU drops.

Hey @TriggerHappy00 and @tnfno2

 

Just to confirm, do you still experience this after updating to the latest Spotify version and restarting your device?

 

Thank you for keeping us in the loop!

I am running latest version and this is probably related to the ads, that is why it only shows up randomly and in some languages when there is a CPU hungry ad. Badly programmed javascript that eats CPU.  I have a Core i7 10th gen brand new laptop and SPotify takes almost 30% CPU when some ads are showing.  But if you minify the Spotify window to the taskbar, javascript is halted and the CPU drops below 1% still playing music.  You should check your ads before bringing them online!
