Hey VicJr, welcome to the Community.
It looks like your account was created via Facebook. This means you can't swap the associated profile - you'd have to sign up for a new account.
Let us know if you need any help getting this arranged.

Ricard, How can you use Spotify outside of facebook? I tried and tried and tried and it turns out facebook is mandatory. I ended up creating a fake facebook account (fake name, address, everthing fake) just to use your Spotify service. It would be nice to know how I could create a new Spotify account without anything to do with Facebook.

VicJr, if you'd like the original account simply deleted you can drop us an email via our contact form. We'll get back to you asap.
Something34523, all new Spotify accounts require an active Facebook account at this time. That's simply the requirement that currently stands, I can't help you get around this.

Well I just delete the fake Facebook account associated with my Spotify. I will attempt only to use "Spofity Device Password" from now on. I have verified "Spotify Device Password" works fine to login at spotify.com with my PC and also to the Spotify Windows application. Now I get "Failed to enable Spotify Social" but guess what I never ask to enable it, so this is good!

Something34523 - I really would not recommend doing this, as it will create a number of problems with your account. Deleting the Facebook account will cause problems with the social connection in Spotify and you'll receive errors in the client. We won't be able to help you fix this.
I've also deleted one of your posts with instructions on how to do this. We'd rather not be overwhelmed by reports of users suddenly complaining their Spotify social isn't working after following these steps. I hope you can appreciate this.
