spotify changes my local file's song name

     So I wanted to add you - Dodie Clark (which i got as a patreon donor) to my playlists and it's not on spotify but the spotify windows desktop version changed the name of my song to PS I Love You - Dodie Stevens because i guess incorrectly recognized it as a song in it's database. the audio is unchanged, it's still my song, it just has different details (cover art, artist, etc.)

    The other weird thing is that when i searched for that song it wasn't even on spotify so i don't know where it got the information from.

     I know there used to be a feature that could easily fix this problem (link/unlink song) but for some reason they thought that was an unecessary feature so it's not there anymore. It's incredibly irritating that there used to be a solution that is now inaccessible. There are many people who have complained about it and i don't understand why it was removed in the first place.

Hey @very_eel! Welcome to the Spotify Community!

That's odd. Does this also show up on other devices? Could you make sure Local Files aren't on on your device? You can head to: 'Edit > Preferences > Local Files' and make sure that everything's turned off. Let me know how it goes! 🙂

 

Have a great weekend!
