Why does some songs suddenly become unavailable?

Casual Listener

Hey, so the thing is I've been listening to this song for ever, and now it is suddenly unavailable and I think it has been for around a month, what's the reason for this?

 

The same thing has happened before, but with a whole album, which came back after a months time.

Some songs are removed, when Spotify receives a request from the rights holder(s). For example a record label. I can't think of any other reason than that. There are loads of music missing and the catalog does seem to shrink more and more when time passes, but still I think this is a better app than rivals.

Yeah that was what I thought originally, but when there's only one song on an album with 32 songs it's kind of wierd. Anyways I checked again yesterday and I found that there was an extended version of the song available so it's not a big deal anymore.
