I am using Spotify Premium which I am on my free 30 day trial that I just signed up for today. It is on windows 7. It will not let me search for new songs. I can see albums under Discover and click on names or the album and listen however, I cannot get anything to return once I type anything into the search bar and hit enter. Frustrating, please help...

I am having the exact same problem. Just a new PC; Windows 7.  I can play my existing play lists and "browse" and everything, but I cannot search for new music using the search bar.


HELP!

I am having the same exact problem with the new update to the desktop version of Spotify. It won't let me search for artists using the search bar. It's extremely frustrating and makes it harder to navigate through the different artists I enjoy listening to.

I can type in the search box, but then nothing happens. I am not able to search for any new music.

Is this on desktop @erikajwright ?

If so, try restarting the client (File > Exit and restart).
