My Question or Issue

Hi,

I'm trying to build something to gather album releases from a specific genre but the API response seem not return all the album. For example at this date if you call the API you will not find albums with following ID:

4Fri6HZJBanzSrf4tMjF1h
3oL7bhWXCokZi7HKUu4BL9

although they've been released within the last week. Am I missing something ?

Hey @Dranaxel, thanks for your question!

The New Releases endpoint returns albums featured in the Spotify app. A lot of albums are released on Spotify every day so it won't include all albums. Let me know if that clears things up!

 

Thanks,

Hubo

Hi @Hubo,

 

Thanks for your answer, it seems clear to me. I would like to capture all the new releases of some specific style, is there an easy way to do this ? As the new releases is "incomplete" and the search on tag new return so much answer that I cannot access them all with the API
