My Question or Issue

The song: Two Princes - Spin Doctors Album Pocket Full Of Kryptonite, won't download (red circle with arrow) spotify:track:4ePP9So5xRzspjLFVVbj90. The song will still play. All other songs are downloading fine (green circle with arrow). I have removed the song from my 'liked songs', tried to download it again, but still won't download. Please help.

Hey @jwherd

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

We tested this and can confirm that there shouldn't be any issues with downloading the song you mentioned. 

 

Would you mind trying to download it on a different internet connection or to download all your Liked Songs including this one after reinstalling Spotify to see if anything changes? If you still experience what you reported, it'd be great if you'd let us know the following:

  • how much free space is currently available on the device you're trying to download this song with
  • how many songs you already downloaded with the same device

Let us know how you get on. We'll keep an eye on your reply!

I've had the exact same problem with the same song since a week or so.

I'm located in Germany.

Hi, Mario. I do have plenty of space on my device. As I said I my original post "other songs download fine". The same happens on my iPad with that song only.

Hey @jwherd and @Feleane,

 

Would you mind opening Settings > Storage in the app and then tapping DELETE CACHE to see if you're then able to download the song?

 

If that doesn't do the trick, it'd be great to try a clean reinstall of Spotify. It'll provide you with a bran-new as well as the most up-to-date version of the app. As a heads-up, any offline playlists will need to be downloaded again after. Take a look at this Spotify answer to find out more about how this procedure works. 

 

Let us know how you get on. We'll look out for your reply!

Hello,

I did already try that. I reinstalled the app aswell as I cleaned the Cache, but nothing has changed. 

Best regards

Deleting the cache didn't do the trick. How come other songs can download fine, but this one song won't? I've reported the error to Spotify, for this specific song, but they were no help.

I'm not worried about this song. But I was just wondering why this was happening? The song does stream though, it just won't download.
