The newest Spotify update is horrible. I have Lumia 620 and since the update Spotify WP8 app is now useless. The Spotify app doesn't work at all if the screen is locked. Music stops after the app has played the track which was chosen. Only one song of a playlist is played. When I unlock the screen the app will start to play the same song all over from the start. This doesn't happen if I keep the app "open" and don't let the screen go blank. I have tried to reinstall Spotify but it did not help.

I have the same issue, but I have found a workaround:
1. Start the playlist you want to hear.
2. Hit the back button until you completely exit the app (eg, kill it)
That's it. Now not only does this bug not repro, but it significantly reduces the lag when skipping songs use the system audio controls (when app is not in foreground). This is a pretty huge issue for me and it appears to get worse when there is some, but poor, cell reception. Do you guys test low connectivity / poor signal?
