I have been using spotify for years now (since 2012 I believe) and am a bit of a music junkie so I love it for being able to listen to endless new music without paying much for it. Unfortunately, lately I have been hearing static in the background of every song that I listen to (especially noticable on the silent parts). It's even louder than static on my record player...
Things I have done to fix this:
Tried different headphones.
Tried two different computers.
Tried on my phone.
Tried outputting sound through car sterio.
Tried listening on the web player.
Turned off and on high quality streaming.
Messed with equalizer.
I am a premium user, and have been for the whole time I've had spotify, and expect the bitrates that I pay for. I really do like this service, but if this problem doesn't get fixed soon I will be forced to leave spotify and not give them another cent.
Also in-case it's the songs I'm listening to and not only my account, here is a song which it is very noticable on: https://play.spotify.com/track/4Z0hLxK36uW6BztYkdLsii. If you go to any of the quieter parts the static is quite loud.
Anyone have any thoughts?

Did you ever get a resolution here? Same exact thing just started happening to me a few days ago, and it is driving me CRAZY
same issue, guess i'lll just discontinue my subscription if it doesn't clear up in a few days.
I've been having this problem on my PC, Using a Creative Soundblaster Zx and Logitech Z623 speakers. I'm getting this on quite a few songs, even after clearing my storage folder to make sure it wasn't corrupt.
Such as Crazy by Gnarls Barkley. It's super bad.
I just started noticing it today on mine. Just bought a new Bluetooth speaker thinking I had blown my other. Now I can see it’s a Spotify issue. Fix please. Thanks.
