It was with utter shock that I opened my Spotify today, only to see Lykaia, an Album from the band Soen, greyed out as if I couldn't listen to it anymore. What the **bleep** happened? I was listening to it last sunday evening and now it's gone from our region. I can't even listen to my offline songs from the album. If I have them on my phone's SD Card, what is the point of blocking them?
Can you give me an insight about it? Is this related to the band or the producers, or maybe someone asked this album to be removed from Brazil for some reason? Is this a worldwide issue or what? Maybe a copyright expired, but if that's the case, please put it back on as fast as possible. Our country barely gets local releases for less known bands, so our only option is to buy a 40 dollar import disc to have their song always available or to use Spotify.
Why is Lykaia the only album we can't listen to from Soen? I'll wait for further info on this subject. Please do something about it.
You have the largest streaming database of all other song streaming services and that's the sole reason I've been paying a Spotify family subscription for almost 2 years. Please don't **bleep** this up.
Sincerely, a fan.

Hey everyone, thanks for coming to the Spotify Community!
Missing or unavailable music is almost always a decision by the artist/label to withhold the content from Spotify. Sometimes it's temporarily unavailable while they sort out legal issues or correct metadata, in which case it'll be back up as soon as they resubmit it to Spotify. While it might be a good idea to contact the artist or label directly and ask why the music isn't on Spotify, you can also fill out this form to let Spotify staff know of your interest. You might also be interested in supporting this idea, which suggests a simpler method for requesting albums missing from Spotify.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else! Happy listening 🙂
