My Question or Issue

For the past month I've been unable to play songs from new artists completely. I click play on for example Loqiemean's Повес2ка album, current song stops playing as it should, progress bar at 0:00, cover photo resets to default, no artist/song shown, only the favourite button.

Was planning on entirely dropping Spotify, support is my last hope.

Same here, just started happening today to me. I can only listen to songs that i have favourited. If i try to play any other song which i have never listened to, or haven't favourited then it just shows a blank image  and nothing plays.

It's happening to me as well, can't play songs that aren't in my playlists and it's extremely aggravating. Also shows up with no artist name, no song title, no album cover, and no sound.

I hope it works for you!

Already did it multiple times, it's more of a temporary fix because I can play a few new artists then it breaks again

This just started happening to me today as well. I tried to play an album on my phone and then cast it to my computer, but that didn't work either. I can listen to any song of my choosing on my phone, but I can only play songs in my library on my laptop.

I'm having the same issue too and a reinstallation only works for an hour or so. It's getting really frustrating.

Is everyone here using Spotify Free, or do you have Premium?

Check your hosts file (windows/system32/drivers/etc).  If your HOSTS file contains a line with "spclient.wg.spotify.com" delete the entry, and you should be able to play all songs, but ads will return.

seems to be related, songs do play now but let's see if it remains stable

This is exactly what I thought. I wish Spotify was available in my country so I could buy premium.
