Can The Same Track Have Different Spotify Ids?

Can The Same Track Have Different Spotify Ids?

I have requested my extended Spotify history and I have logged their Spotify Ids via the "spotify_track_uri"

I am trying to get the album image for the song, so I have setup a script to request an artist's albums and then iterate through each one looking for the specific track id.

However, I noticed that the song "Golden Hour" by JVKE, in my extended history, has an ID of "6GD1eomgaGT1Epto6Q5eAo" and that id is not found when iterating over all of the albums. When looking over the albums returned from Spotify I see the album containing "golden hour" and a track ID of 

"34VhnIUNsHQFDyxhymwnZl"
 
Examining the webpages show the seemingly the same page, but the album redirects redirect to identical albums with different IDs.
Also, liking one does not like the other, yet they share the exact same stream count.
Is there a way I can use the Spotify API to get these seemingly hidden, identical albums. (I'm only including "single" and "album" group in my request, but I don't think that is the problem here)
 
A simple, and not unreasonable fix could be simply looking for identical names, not ID's, but I still want to know about said identical tracks.
