Unplayable Album


Unplayable Album

Casual Listener
I have an iPhone 6 and last night, i went to go listen to Rammstein and found that my favorite album LIEBE IST FÜR ALLE DA had disappeared. i closed my app, reopened it, and it was still gone. i checked the band's website, because maybe they had taken it off streaming services because of a new pending album release, but nothing was there. i updated the app, and now it shows the songs, but the they are a dark grey color and unplayable. someone please help.

Hey @funkyfaedance


Greyed out songs usually means it's current unavailable to play.


The reason is that the artist or their music label has likely decided to remove it from Spotify.

The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artist and their music label.

Spotify wants all the world's music, and they're working hard on making this happen for you. However sometimes agreements can't be reached with the artist or label or a change may happen in music ownership. Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others. Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later.

The songs/albums will still be shown in your playlists so you can keep track of them, but they will be greyed out and unplayable. Make sure to go in settings and check for the setting that shows unavailable songs.
