My Question or Issue

I have search for artist **bleep** chambers and song Judas Goat. I was not able to find it via client. When googling for this song, I have found link https://open.spotify.com/album/3YrpiFq86Tt20GJz7Iz18r?highlight=spotify:track:6W1fEi8TTCGsfv4nGpGqJi

pointing to the album on Spotify with this song but I am not able to play any song from it.

I have found more songs and albums like this.

How can I play such albums/songs?

Thank you.

Hi @DomerPDo

 

The songs that are no longer available are greyed out, which means you can't play them. 

 

If you still want to see unavailable content:

 

Mobile and tablet 

  • Tap Home 
  • Tap Settings 
  • Switch Show unplayable songs on (green)

 

Desktop

  • Click the arrow  in the top-right corner and select Settings.
  • Under Display Options switch Show unavailable songs in playlists on (green)

Hi @DomerPDo

This can happen if licensing agreements with the artist/labels, or ownership of rights, has changed. Availability can vary between countries as well.

Unfortunately, this is something that Spotify doesn't have control over as it is up to the individual music companies and artists. 

Hopefully the songs you're looking for will reappear soon!

Hello @Emilia_8,

 

I understand licensing and owneship issues but I expected such songs/albums will be labeled like this.

 

Also if I like such song/album, it is shown in my library although unplayable. But when I add such song into playlist, I can not see it there although it is there as I am not able to add it again. I expect to see it in my playlist.

 

I hope Spotify will adress these simple issues to satisfy their subscribers.

 

Kind regards,

DomerPDo

@ Emilia_8,

Thank you for pointing me on settings, I didn't realised it before.

 

It's OK that those songs are greyed out but information why is that so is expected.
