Spotify has exact release date information for albums - it can be viewed in the mobile app (at least under iOS, v8.5.41).
Using the official desktop app, however (macOS, v126.96.36.199.g4ca6d5eb) you only get the year.
Why the disparity? I would have thought that, if anything, the desktop app would contain more granular information, while the mobile app would contain more of a summary.
Year is not very granular at all - artists can do a lot in a year, and fans sometimes like to know at least the month they released something, if not also the day.
Thank you for reading
