Songs I have played are now greyed out

I played one of my favorite comedy albums on Spotify two weeks ago. I went back tonight to play it again and all tracks but one are greyed out. I've tried clearing cache as suggested here. I also found that the same tracks are greyed out on every other device my Spotify account is logged into. If I search for the album on open.spotify.com it shows up and looks playable, but if I try to log in and play it, it is once again greyed out. How do I get it back?

Hey @mobiguy,

 

Thanks of reaching out about this in the Community.

 

Sometimes content like songs or entire albums might become unavailable in certain countries due to licensing issues or requests by the rights holders. In which cases some songs will appear grayed out and unplayable.

 

If you send us a link to the album and let us know the country of your Spotify account, we can check if the content is currently available 🙂

 

Keep us posted.

Correction, when I look at the album on open.spotify.com it shows the same tracks greyed out whether I'm logged in or not. The album is "I Have A Pony" by Steven Wright, if that helps. Only the track "Rachel" is playable.

All comedy tracks seem to be greyed out. At least on my devices. Verified by a friend in another country with the same determination. Only the tracks with music in it work fine. Is there a new policy regarding non music content?

Hey @Shepard82,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

As we're not aware of any such new policies, it'd be best to contact the rights owner of the content directly to get a clear answer to why some of their content is not available on Spotify right now.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Cheers!

Hi @Dian,

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunatly it's no help. It would be impossible to reach out to all word artists in the world 😅.
The problem is exactly like @mobiguy described and many people around me start to notice this too. Maybe it's only a European thing but strangely I can't find anything online.
Last week everything was fine.

Operating from Belgium btw.
Very weird.
