Spotify hasn't shown artwork for releases since last Thursday (it started with the "new" albums I played and it now affects all of them, since I've deleted and reinstalled the app).
Places where I don't see covers (and instead there is the usual black image with a thin CD shape): Player, Home tab, Search tab (both for artists and releases), Your Library tav (both artists and releases in the Recently Played section, the Artists section, the Albums section, and the Playlists section). Playlists with automatically-made covers with thumbnails of four releases have the same problem, including the Daily Mixes.
Places where I do see covers: Any playlist with custom artwork (both user-created and Spotify's), Release page (for example, an album in my library doesn't have a cover, but when I tap on it and it goes to its page, it loads), Artist profile.
This happens over WiFi and over cellular (LTE). The screenshot (Airplane mode + WIFI) isn't the only way I've tried it.
I've talked with @SpotifyCares on Twitter and tried logging out/logging in, deleting the app, deleting cache, etc. They also did "some magic backstage" but the situation didn't change. Last message I got is that the info was being sent to the team. Has anyone experienced something similar? Any idea? It's for sure one of the most irritating and frustrating issues I've experienced in Spotify since I became user in 2013.
Thanks for your patience on this.
This should now be fixed - the artwork should start gradually re-appearing soon.
We will keep track of your reports in the coming weeks, and if it's still not fixed then we'll look into it.
