Why do Albums Disappear?

Casual Listener
i was listening to an album, for entire month, and now it's gone. It doesn't exist anymore! I've searched it, and nothing. I searched a title from the album and it came up as saved from my playlist, clicked on it, and it said unavailable. This has happened twice now. Is this going to happen to the albums I like and listen to a lot? I pay for premium! Would really like to know why this is happening!

Hey the artist may have taken the music off the platform for unkown reasons.

Your request would be perfectly reasonable if this was something like Netflix where you can just quickly watch all the movies that are due to expire. What were you planning on doing if Spotify gave you warning that an album is being removed? Binge listen to it on loop then totally forget about it when it's gone? The fact is advertising that songs are being removed is simply bad publicity and bad for business with little benefit to the end user. When you realise the song is missing you're either going to buy it, pirate it or ignore it, all of which don't require a pre-warning.

This happens from time to time. In my experience the albums come back again after a while. Some stuff I was listening to recently vanished from both Spotify and Google Music at the same time. It's been gone for two weeks so far.

Hi there,
Welcome at the Spotify Community!

 

Sounds like the artist removed the album, could you please share the album title and album link with us?

You can get the album link by performing an right-mouse click on it -> Copy HTTP link.

 

Thank you, and have a nice day!

I seem to have lost the Album Days of Speed by Paul Weller. It's been on Spotify for a long time and now is gone. When I search through Google I can see it but not in the Spotify player.

 

Anyone had the same issue?
