My Question or Issue
Even though up until a few weeks ago I was using Spotify with no issues, now I can't play most of the songs if I found them by searching on the search bar. The playlists, saved by me or not, work just fine, and the songs I have on my library don't give me issues either. I noticed I can't add songs to library nor any of my playlists if they can't be played.
It appears to be completely random too: I can play Michael Jackson and not Kendrick Lamar.
This is how it looks.
I've tried reinstalling Spotify, deleting folders and cache, updating QuickTime, using the WindowsStore version, and nothing works. I can use Spotify on my phone and MacBook, just not with Windows.
I would appreciate any help on this.

Hey @arminecraftyt, welcome to the Community!
I'd recommend checking your hosts file: see this Answer article on how to!
Sometimes some adblockers or other third party software may edit the file, eg for avoiding ads. However, Spotify-related addresses in hosts, such as
will very likely break your Spotify client.
Let me know how it goes. 🙂
