Saved songs do not show as saved on Album or Artist pages







Operating System



My Question or Issue

Songs that have already been added to library appear as unadded in artist pages (and elsewhere). Either Spotify has a terrible data model or they don't care about their users. Or perhaps it's both? How is it that it's been 4 years and this bug is still in the platform...

Hey everyone,


Thanks for your patience!


As the saved version is not the same version saved under The Artist/Album, this is currently expected behavior. We'll make sure to let the right team know this is something you'd like to see different in the future.


Thanks again for your reports, we appreciate your feedback.



I´ve been experiencing the same problem and it's extremely annoying. I thought it was just me being picky but it´s good to know I'm not the only one.


First post about this issue is from 2014... Four years ago and still no solution.


This is pretty bad. I'm having this problem too.


Is sad to see this thread opened in 2014 and in 2018 this problem still not resolved by Spotify dev.


I'm also having this issue.  Would love to see a resolution soon.


Also still having this issue. 4 years without a resolution, and barely even an acknowledgement is pretty shocking. Really hope this gets picked up soon as its the only problem I have with Spotify, this bug ruins an otherwise perfect service.


It's 2018 and this is still happening to me. Did anyone find a solution?


Hey @watertank.


Thanks for reaching out 🙂


Could you send us a screenshot to show us how it looks on your end? That would be really useful.





Yup same issue here. Just encountered it few days ago when I was going over my saved albums. I had many such albums. Just for example Cypress Hill - III. I had it in my library but if I then went to the artist's page it showed Save button instead of Saved. So if I then pressed Save I got duplicate albums.

It's like the albums in my library "lose connection" to the ones at artist pages after some time. 

Status changed to: Need more info

Hey folks,


Thank you for your feedback. We're filing this issue under "Needs more info". 


Could you provide us with a few more details, including:

  • Spotify version,
  • Device model and OS version,
  • How long you've been experiencing this issue for?
  • Do you experience this with all songs, or just certain songs?

Important: don't forget to add your vote in the top-right corner - that way the issue can get escalated.




I noticed this last feek. But as it appears this bug is years old...?


At the time I used my Mac Spotify client:

  • Macbook Pro mid-2012, macOS 10.11.6
  • Hard to tell for how long since I don't regularly check artist pages
