Local Files - Spotify Desktop Won't Recognize Metadata

I've got some mp3 files that Spotify won't recognize the titles of. I've fixed them in Mp3tag, but Spotify still won't recognize them. Check out the attached pic from Mp3tag... 

 

... and check out the attached pic from Spotify Desktop. It just displays the file name, but not the artist, track name, etc. What am I doing wrong?

Hey @blehmann, welcome to the Community!

 

Does this issue persist if you restart the app after adding the local files? You can also try logging out and back in a few times to see if it helps.

 

If not, try a clean reinstall to see if that does the trick.

 

Hope that helps.

Uninstalling and reinstalling did in fact fix it - thanks!

Hey @blehmann.

 

We're glad to hear the reinstallation helped.

 

If your Spotify starts misbehaving again, feel free to open a new thread.

 

Cheers.
