My Question or Issue

Since one of the recent updates a month or so back, the desktop version of Spotify has become incredibly slow to get going - after opening the app, I get a blank black screen for at least 5 minutes each time. Any ideas what has caused this? I've tried a clean reinstall and it works quickly the first time after the reinstall but then goes back to being slow (the same has happened each time there's been an update). Is there some sort of log I can check to find out why Spotify is running so slowly?

Thanks.
