Album suddenly gone from spotify?

Is there any way to tell how or why an album was removed? Mike Doughty's Sad Man Happy Man has suddenly vanished, but all of his other work is still there.

Hey there and thank you for this question.

 

Album may be removed from Spotify because of one of those reasons:

 

1. Album will be re-added to Spotify in future with right tags/local version.

2. Album is removed from Spotify in your country, rightholder/recordlabel can choose from where album can be played.

3. Album is added to Spotify by mistake and this is removed due to this.

 

Please remember that if album is removed due to one reason in this list, albums is removed from all users. For example from Spotify Premium users too.

 

I hope that this helps.

 

Cheers!

Thanks for the quick response.  Just seems odd to only remove ONE album. The others, both before and after that are still there.

 

Thanks anyway.

To clarify, having premium or not having premium - to my knowledge - it doesn't make any difference. Once an album / song is removed it is removed from everyone regardless of what subscription you have or if you are a free user.

Some albums / songs could be blocked in certain countries and they might be available elsewere.
