Songs displaying in the wrong language


Songs displaying in the wrong language


Hi, I listen to lots of Japanese songs and they display in katakana (japanese characters). I can't read Japanese. There were some times that I could access the song/artist in romaji (english letters) so I would rather have that. Is there an option or a way to access the song/artist in english only? The songs that I add to my playlist when I can see the english version stay in english. When listening to it on my laptop/phone, the web player shows it in japanese.Screenshot_31.png

My Question or Issue

Is there a way to get the songs to display in English instead of Japanese?Screenshot_32.png

Hi there @jackdaguy,

thanks for reaching out to the community !


Please keep in mind that Spotify uploads tracks information as they receive it. 

Therefore, changing it isn't possible.


Hope this sheds some light.

Please let me know if you have any further questions 🙂
