Music wrongly being put under an artist's name

There is a band called Beyond from Hong Kong. I truely enjoy listening to their music since it brings back memories and old times. But under the name Beyond is some trashy hard rock metal band music. The hard rock metal band's name is also called Beyond. This is absoutely obsurd and outrageous. By putting the hard rock metal band's music in there, it ruins the overall appearance and music choices from the Beyond from Hong Kong. I just wanted to bring awareness to this situation for i am certain that there are other instances like this as well.

Also why is the split album "baby jesus, sliced up in the manger" have all its songs credited to F-minus/Leftover Crack when LOC didnt go by that name on that album It should be credited as tracks 1-5 as F-minus and 6-10 as Crack Rock Steady Seven.

The same applies to Trust (band from the 80's) and TRST (synth goth band currently touring).

Why doesn't Spotify have customer service contact info to correct this?

I have noticed this a lot too.  I have also noticed that a lot of dates are wrong on albums.  Is there anyway to contact them and tell them this?

Hey! Welcome to the community :)

You can report any content errors/issues such as these directly to the Spotify content team using the instructions outlined in this topic. Once you have submitted a query, the content team will investigate and then pass any needed details over to the record label to request a correction/change if needed (so it can take some time unfortunately!).

This issue stems a little deeper than just multiple artists on the same page. Spotify currently does not have a way in the clients to separate artists with the same name, meaning anytime this happens the artists get merged onto a single page. There is a discussion about it over on the Ideas Exchange here.

Artists with the same name - go here.

 

Incorrect metadata - go here instead.
