Can’t find artist on Spotify


Can’t find artist on Spotify


I’m looking for the band The Orange Lights in Spotify if I search in the app I cannot find them. But if I do a google search I find links to the Life Is Still Beautiful album in Spotify but following the links ones not display the album in the Spotify app.


How can I access the Orange Lights content?

Hi @Mc_cool_e and welcome to the Spotify Community! :)

Spotify has posted an answer here on why some music is not currently available.
It's possible that the artist you're looking for could be accessible again in the future as I have some songs in my playlists that used to be available (and still show the track links), but are not currently playable. This way if it gets added back on the service you won't have to hunt the songs down again.

I hope you find their article helpful and have an awesome day! :)

Re: Can’t find artist on Spotify


It is a little difficult to understand why I can find Jonathan Brooke’s album 10 cent wings on the web with a link to open the album on Spotify, but cannot find it through the app by album or artist.
