Hey @9950t1q2fqcsmjm, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

Please try to readjust the left panel and the artwork should reappaer.


The other storage taken is the cache which are the files Spotify stores locally stores on your device everytime you stream songs. You can delete those files but that space will be taken back again when you start streaming. 

That can't be changed but however you can limit it by reading this post here 🙂

Let me know how it goes 🙂
