Local Album Cover Not Showing

Local Album Cover Not Showing

My Question or Issue

Hey I use local files for Spotify all the time without issue, but for some reason I can't get one album's art (Acid Rap - Chance the Rapper) to show up on Spotify. I've tried (on MP3Tag) different sizes ranging from 250x250-1600x1600, messing with tags, cover types, and even downloading the album from different sources but it wont show up! One time when I resynced everything the album art showed up on mobile, but after a few minutes it went back to nothing. I have no idea what to do, I'll attach a screenshot of the MP3Tag with properties of a song off the album in case that's of any help.

Thank you

Hi, I'm having the same issue right now, did you fix it? If you did, can you please tell me how you did it? 🙂

I haven't fixed and neither has Spotify.

I just managed the fix it thanks to another thread 😄 Apparently if you have an apostrophe in the name of the file it causes an error/bug with the album cover. I had an apostrophe in the file name (not the song's name itself on mp3tag, the actual file name) and my issue was solved immediately after I deleted the apostrophe and resynced my local songs on Spotify 🙂 I hope this works for you too! 

If there isn't an apostrophe maybe another thing in the file name is causing it, try naming the file very short and simple ^^
