BUG: Advanced search with AND stopped to work correctly in both official app and API

Solved!

BUG: Advanced search with AND stopped to work correctly in both official app and API

Hello.

Suddenly I realised that queries like "genre:metal AND year:1982" (this one is from official example of advanced search queries at https://support.spotify.com/us/article/search/) stopped to work correctly. It used to bring exactly what was requested (in the example case metal tracks released in 1982) but now it returns tracks from random years like "AND" is ignored. 

Tested both via API and in official Spotify desktop app (via search control) - the results are the same wrong.

Looks like a bug to me 'cause there was no official communication on deprecation of advanced search syntax or something.

My app starts working incorrectly and of course I would like to see the resolution as soon as possible. Thank you.
