Audio Book: Tracks suddenly disappeared


Audio Book: Tracks suddenly disappeared

Casual Listener

All sudden all tracks from my audio book I just have listened were gone. After one week now half of them are back in white (playable) but the rest stays grey (unplayable). Strange. I have installed the spotify app again and I have tried it on my desktop with the same result. The tracks stay grey. Does anyone has an idea why?

Hey @bolzenapparat


Note: this is the reply I use for questions like this, but it also applies to non-music content


The reason is that the artist or their music label has likely decided to remove it from Spotify.

The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artist and their music label.

Spotify wants all the world's music, and they're working hard on making this happen for you. However sometimes agreements can't be reached with the artist or label or a change may happen in music ownership. Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others. Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later.

The songs/albums will still be shown in your playlists so you can keep track of them. Make sure to go in settings and check for the setting that shows unavailable songs.
