This works for me, every time. Just switch from whatever sound output device you have set, to something else, then back again. Crazy. Spotify, what is this all about?

Come on, recurring bug here , please sort this out. NOTHING changed between launches if spotify, yet it reports this error. Even the message is totally misleading. You can't play the tune..... Because you lost track of the output device? Really? 🙄🙄🙄🙄
