An Album appears in search - but "not available in the current region"

An Album appears in search - but "not available in the current region"

I've been waiting like a mad new Nightwish "Endless Forms Most Beautiful", and it appears now in search results

spotify:album:34cB85J5qbh5R08ce4c2HX

 

Why "Cant' play this track - Sorry it is not available in the current region"?

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

Spotify has no control over what content is available.

 

Sometimes it is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others.

Are you serious?

 

"Spotify has no control over what content is available."

 

So you just list everything to give an impresison that your services has A LOT music available, so that a potential new client makes a subscription, regardless do you like EVER have it available through your service?

 

I'd call that misleading marketing. WHY do you list albums that are actually not available?

 

 

The album is giving you a region error?

 

Artists sometimes restrict their album from certain countries. Spotify cannot control that.

Thank you, at least that gave some bits of information. However, I still despite your policy to show albums as available that are not available.
