I'm trying to break free from the facebook death-grip, but unfortunately I don't want to have to lose all of my playlists with no hope of getting them back (unless I open a spreadsheet and make a list of each of the thousand songs saved, then re-save those songs into another spotify account). I already tried to open a new account and start from scratch, but I'm losing a ton of work I've poured into the perfect playlists. Is there any reassurance that I will still be able to keep my account if I delete/deactivate my facebook? Or another way to change to another blank facebook account? Aye...
Solved! Go to Solution.

I broke free from the Facebook death-grip several months ago and I don't regret it at all. Freedom!
Likewise, I originally signed up for Spotify via my FB account, and when I deactivated my FB account and logged into Spotify, it reactivated my FB account. (You can't "delete" your FB, you can only deactivate it -- scary, huh?)
Anyhow, I contacted Spotify via their help form and they worked some kind of voodoo that transferred all my playlists to a new account. Don't think there's a way to do it without them manually doing it for you.
Welcome to the Facebook-free life, fellow human!

I have outlined all of the ways you can disconnect your account from Facebook in a handy tutorial here. If you would rather someone from Spotify do it for you, just get in touch with the link at the top of the guide and one of their lovely advisors will be able to help you set up a new non-Facebook account.

Go for it, if you want. Make sure your Spotify is safe before you do that, though, because that will really delete your account entirely!

Thanks Peter! The trick of dragging the playlists from the old Spotify Account to the desktop, then dragging the shortcuts into the new account and placing them into new playlists with the same name was exactly what I was looking for.
