There have been unknown songs, artists, and playlists being added to my recently played list. I checked to see what devices were signed into my account and it only showed my iPhone. There were also artists showing up in my following list that I haven't heard of before. I noticed the problem around Dec. 13, there were two artists that I have never listened to in my list of recently played. I haven't used the app much since then, but when I opened Spotify today, there was 10 unknown artists on the list.

(while making the list, I noticed all songs were uploaded to Spotify in 2019)

List of Unknown Music:

Vocation- Rock Rock

Temper Autumns- Behemoth Moebius

Lavender Tunnel- The Symbiotic Symphonies

Reaching Blasts- The Sunwill 

Keytoy- DJ Shishiki

Ballerina- Lina Linda

Metrolycinematics- Surendous GR

Deep Roads- Epsilon Ways

Nightmares of Oceans- Orion Apollos

Hi there @kstowes1,

thanks for reaching out about this !

 

I recommend following the protection steps provided on this help page.

Furthermore, there are some more steps to be taken on this help page as well.

 

Then, give it a bit more time and see if you're still getting content you haven't listened to on your account.

 

Keep me posted 🙂

I changed my password and followed the other protection steps. After a few minutes, I refreshed my page and there was another song I have not heard of 😞

I'm having the same issue. I've tried everything suggested here and on similar threads to no avail. What the **bleep** is going on, spotify?

A very similar thing has happened to me. New artists/albums are showing up in my recently played music. It started maybe a week before Christmas, or right around Christmas.

 

None of the music is music that any other "friend" or "device of a friend" would have listened to that maybe I left something connected to. But after more thinking, there is nothing that I would have connected that someone else would have access to. All of the music are new singles in 2019 and one album new in 2019. This seems like a security problem on Spotify's end.

 

But despite that, I changed my password, logged out of all devices, disconnected access from all "apps".

 

List of unknown music:

Oceanic Parandrus- The Freedom

School DAY- DJ Stafoli BS

Search Purple- Billions of Legs

Keytoy- DJ Shishiski

We Love You Tecca- Lil Tecca (Full Album)

Losing Twists- Segyeong of Bonpuri

Beautiful Sunset- Rosa Simmons

Socrates Tempest- Billions Junes

Light the Way- Chinse Ka

Viva Lamusika- Henrike Ropolade

The Midnight Sunsets- Lonely Fantasy

Dusty Journal- All Gaia

Saving- Arctic

Imperfect Hurricanes- The Imperfect Glory

 

We have one overlap

Same thing happen to me today.  Left my Spotify open on desktop, left for a bit, came back and recently played songs - artists were:

Viva Lamusika - HENRIKE ROPOLADE [several times played, between each other song]

Violet Savannah - Discovered Winds

Baila Conmigo (feat. Kelly Ruiz) - Dayvi, Victor Cardenas, Kelly Ruiz

Referopanda - ERIC LUMINATICOS

 

All but 1 of the above has only the 1 song on Spotify.  Something fishy going on.
