"New Releases for you" missing

Windows 10


My Question or Issue

The new releases for you section which every friday updates with a selection of new releases from artists I follow is no longer there. What happened? Is it coming back?

Hey folks,


Thanks for reporting this. We can confirm the tech team are aware of the issue.


We don't have a timeframe for a fix, but hopefully we'll have an update soon.


For now, we'd recommend keeping your apps up-to-date.


Thanks again!


Hi @Amen_Yohannes


Sorry for the inconvenient. I guess you just ahve to wait for it. System will regenerate it for you.


Have a nice day!


Ohh ok as long as it comes back that good. Just to clarify I am talking about the "New releases for you" section under the "Discover" tab of the borwsing.


I am having the same problem.  This has been happening quite a bit lately too which is annoying..

Hey @betsig250


That's quite peculiar.

Do you have any problems with the Friend Feed, Daily Mixes, Radio or anything as well?


I recommend reinstalling your Spotify client, it could be a corruption within its files causing this. Just follow this article as a guide 🙂


Let me know how it goes!


Everything else works fine.  Just occasionally I lose the New Release section under Discover.  


I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that hasn't worked. I am not having any issues with any other part of spotify.


Go to this link below and give the "new idea" a like! Hopefully Spotify will bring it back.

The New Releases for You section shouldn't be missing at all, so I also suggest this method below. It requires having administrator rights, but is otherwise easy to check and nothing bad happens when you make the hosts file blank altogether:


1. open Notepad as an administrator (right-click - Open as Administrator)
2. go to File - Open and navigate to


3. Choose "All Files" instead of "Text Documents" next to the File Name box. You'll see a handful of files. Pick hosts and click on Open.
4. The file is opened. You will see a block of text with # in front of each line and might see entries like

Check for any entries with spotify or fastly in the address. Examples may look like: 

(and any variations inbetween)
5. If you do find any, you can delete the line. You can also add a # in front of the line, that's 'commenting out'.
6. Save your changes. Restart Spotify.


You can also try removing all lines to see what happens. 🙂


My hosts file is all # lines.  So it isn't because of this.

Thank you for informing. 🙂


I also suggest clean reinstall of Spotify.

For non-Windows Store client do this:

1. Close Spotify and uninstall it.
2. Go to %AppData% in Windows Explorer, and delete any Spotify folders you find in Local and Roaming folders.
3. Restart your computer.
4. Install Spotify.


For Windows Store client I recommend resetting the app (Tenforums guide) and then reinstalling it following the steps in this article.


Also, if you're running Windows 10, I do suggest using the Windows Store app instead of the standalone program. It's more suitable for Win10 platform. 🙂


Let me know how you get on!
