Play queue skips each song until it gets to the one I selected

Spotify auto-updated recently, and it appears that when I select a song in my play queue, it play-skips each song until it gets to the one I selected. Anybody else having this problem?

I'm having the same issue. This is something that has only recently started occuring, too - within the last day or so. I'll have a playlist on shuffle and go to my play queue, select a song that is anywhere between 5 and 15 spots ahead of what I'm currently listening to, and it will play the first quarter or half of a second of every single song in between the two. This may seem like a minor nuisance, but depending on how far down the queue I scroll, it becomes a major issue. Sometimes it gets so bad that I will have to wait, listening to this skipping for upwards of 2 or 3 minutes. In the meantime, the spotify app is completely non-responsive so I can't do anything else. Before now (i.e. the day before yesterday), I could choose a song that was 15-20 spots ahead of the song I was listening to, and it would just jump straight to that song without problem. 


I'm running the lastest version of Spotify, with a premium subscription, on an iOS device (iPod Touch 5th Gen). I have tried everything short of uninstalling and re-installing the app, since I have a significant amount of offline-playable music downloaded onto my iPod through Spotify.


Funny thing is, I had this exact same problem when I was running the Spotify app on my old Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S3), but that phone had other significant problems so I just chalked it up to dodgy hardware. I am now beginning to think otherwise.
