I've been having this issue fairly recently, it started a week ago when i was simply unable to play songs from directly searching, which was annoying but spotify was still usuable. However after a reinstall every playlist is empty and i cant play ANYTHING

Hello, I've been having the same issue over the last 2-3 days, but I have found this solution from another thread. I tried it and it worked like a charm:

Try clicking "clear catche" or re downloading your app, if you have an I phone/ or apple device a wait a bit.. or try adding songs from your desktop.

Go to your C: drive & find the windows folder

then find system 32

then find drivers

then find etc

and then open the file 'hosts' with notepad (make sure that notepad is opened with as an administrator)

delete any line that includes the words 'spotify'. 

save

and you should be up & running!

Thank you -
I would like to add how to edit the host file:
Press the Windows key.
Type Notepad in the search field.
In the search results, right-click Notepad and select Run as administrator.
From Notepad, open the following file: c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts.
Make the necessary changes to the file.
Select File > Save to save your changes.
