Some songs are not playing and are grayed out


I was on Spotify today and noticed some of the songs I have saved are grayed out and I cannot play them. I know I listened to several of them recently, and they do not show up at all on my phone or on searches. An example is Billy Currington's People Are Crazy. I have reinstalled Spotify, which did nothing to help. Is this an issue with licensing? If it is not a licensing issue, is there any fix?

Hey @BigCowboysFanJR


You can try looking them up on the web player as well ( This is the easiest way to determine if the song is really unavailable or there are other issues. 🙂

I do suspect that it's some licensing issue. Spotify doesn't bring unavailable content up in search results either...


Hopefully the songs become available soon!

I noticed this as well. I love “People Are Crazy” and hate that it’s not available. Sorry, I’m not any help, I’m just a sympathizer...
