More than 30% of the songs in my playlists got unavailable/removed today

Hello.

I wanted to know what happened with tons of music suddenly being unavailable, as more than 30% of all the songs in my playlists are now unavailable.
Some playlist are also entirely unavailable (as using only a few Albums, which got removed).

 

I don't really know what to do now, as my playlists are unusable, and I'm missing the content that I want.
Is it a temporary lost of contract, and are the songs destined to come back really soon?

 

Spotify team: Do not hesitate to log as me and check my playlists to measure the extend of all the missing files on your side. This is pretty annoying, and removes all the interest of spotify.

Wow, almost everything is back, nice.
So apparently you lost everything just for a day. Was it a bug or licence renewal who took longer that expected?

Happening again, 15% of my music is grayed in my playlists.

Is it something which will happen on a regular basis? Music getting grayed out and coming back after a few days?

Any content that has disappeared or been removed is normally down to the record label or rights holder. Sometimes content is removed due to licensing changes, transfer of ownership or due to a request from the content owner all of which are a little out of Spotify's hands since they do not own the content, the labels do! Things do normally reappear, but it can take a little time unfortunately.

Same here.  In my case it's probably because most of my playlists are foreign songs.  Then that was the beauty of Spotify, and now one should really wonder if it's worth its monthly fee...  At times youtube does better for free!

Thanks for the reply.
Yeah, I've experienced it a few times before, but this time, quite a lot got removed (and it's a bunch of different musics which got removed at the same time, not only a few songs from the same label or artist, but actually random songs from various people/label).

All of my Jason Aldean & Taylor Swift songs are "unavailable" please tell me this will come back... It's pointless to pay $10 a month when half my songs were taken away.
