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.

Update: I uninstalled and reinstalled Spotify today. The problem got worse. Now I can't play anything from spotify at all. Only local files.

Same thing has been happening to me for the past couple weeks. I've honestly stopped listening to Spotify because of it. Reinstalling only fixes it until computer restart.

I've also been experiencing this problem. The only solution I have found on multiple threads is to uninstall and reinstall Spotify, but this seems to be a temporary fix rather than a permanent one. I really hope the devs can get on top of this problem, because it's super obnoxious to deal with and almost makes me want to go back to Soundcloud.

 

EDIT: I found a solution here

I've had the exact same problem since about Saturday. Just like you said it won't let me play stuff from artists I haven't listened too before. I tried everything and nothing seems to work. Btw Spotify on my phone works fine, Spotify downloaded on my computer is having this issue. Let me know if any of you guys get an answer.

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.

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

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

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

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

Happening to me too. Reinstalling helps, but it just comes back the next day.

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.
