Spanish band not showing with a US account?

Casual Listener

Hi there!

 

I have a US Spotify account but I'm Spaniard. I just realized that some albums from a Spanish band (Love of Lesbian - 1999) are not showing on my library, but appear instead in my sister's library who has a Spanish Spotify account.

 

Is that correct?

 

Cheers,

 

David

Yup, all content in the Spotify catalogue is country specific meaning each album essentially has a list of countries it is available in (ie. Spotify have license to distribute it in those countries).

As Matt mentioned, anything that is missing in certain countries is almost always down to the labels sadly.

Sometimes the artist's music label will only release it for certain countries. If you are sure that it will play for her, but not you, then that is probably the reason why. The availability of the music is up to the artist and the music label.

 

I tried playing that album from my US account and it tells me the album is not available in the United States.
