Have you tried any troubleshooting? If not, we advise you to start with a clean reinstall of the app on your device. The steps for that are here. This way we can be sure, that you're running a fresh installation of the app. Also make sure to install the version from the Microsoft Store, if not already done so, or try the version from our site, if not tried already.
If the issue still persists afterwards, could you provide a short screen recording of the described issue, so we can get a clear understanding of what is going on on your end?

Thanks for the response. I have already tried a reinstall from the Spotify website. The problem remained. But I found out a workaround: If I go to an album, click-mark all the tracks, and drag them to one of my playlists: then something happens that make the tracks in the album playable. Now, when I click on the play button for any track in the album, it plays as it should. Very strange. If it helps, I can provide a screen recording later (I guess you don't mean a screen shot, but a recording -- I have to find out how to make...). Best, Christer Berg
In this short screen recording you can see how I first try and play tracks in an album without success (it doesn't show, but I do click on the play symbols). I then drag the tracks to a playlist, and immediately the last track I clicked starts to play. And I can also play the other tracks, just as it should work. Very obscure... https://youtu.be/iAeS4Fs0HtY
I'm having the same issue. No fix after reinstalling either. Any song will play just fine from a playlist, but trying to play any song from an album on an artist's page does nothing. Pause/play button is grayed out, no song title or album artwork on the lower left. The only time I have gotten it to work is if I click into the album from the tile view (not the list view - won't work), "like" and then "unlike" the album, then it will play, SOMETIMES. Some albums will only play the first few songs then not progress after that, some play all the way through, some still won't play at all.
This is a tough one... I switched to a mobile hotspot, and it worked! I then switched back to my fiber/wifi, and now it worked there too! I restarted the computer, and now it didn't work on any of the connections... absurd...
Same as ventolin80. I'm using F-Secures VPN Freedome. I changed my Swedish node to a US node, and then I can play the tracks as it should work. And then I changed back to Swedish node. Now working. Please note that i didn't restart the Spotify app. Changing VPN-nodes was all I did.
