One Song Sounds Different Only In App


I was listening to one of my old playlists, and I noticed something weird. The song "Young Volcanoes" by Fall Out Boy on the spotify desktop app sounds like (and I'm pretty sure is) the live version of the song (You can hear cheering at the end) but when I play it on the web player (changing device) on the same pc it plays a proper studio version (You can swap back and forth from the app and the web player and the cheering disappears). Is there any way to fix this?

Hey @TehGibbo!


Sounds like you might have the album or song in question saved as a local file on your desktop.


If the Spotify app is picking up your local files, the version you own could be interfering with the version on the playlist. Try disabling your local files by heading to the Spotify Settings > Local Files, and turn off any sources before trying to play the playlist again.


Let me know how it goes.
