Greyed out songs UK / Censorship of artists

Hi

I'd like to know why a number of songs from artists who are based in my country have been greyed out. I paid for a service, that isn't being provided in my opinion.

Please advise or I am going to find an alternative platform. 

 

Thanks

Hi @louij2, thanks for writing!

 

Can you please try playing this playlist from another device?

 

Also, if you send me the link of it I'll check if it's available or not for me.

Hi try this 

https://open.spotify.com/album/2WXeILBWAMsPOqoPxypzHF?si=NKr5MNn8RBqzk7ogLfG7kw

 

Album that's greyed out for me and can't listen on any device even laptop and android.

Didn't think Spotify got involved with politics like this...

Well, this one is not available anywhere.

 

I don't think it's a question of Spotify being involved in politics. We know that Spotify would like to make all the world's music available, but this availability can vary over time and between countries, depending on the permissions from rights holders.

 

On the other hand, new content is added to Spotify every day. If you can’t find something you’re looking for now, it may appear (or reappear) soon.

 

Meanwhile you can try to reach the artists through their social media channels and try to find the reason of this.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions 🙂

Hey @louij2,

 

I believe the artist has someone to look after his business, so you might send him a message at Soundcloud and you'll get an answer, I hope.
