Unplayable Song

Unplayable Song

Hello there,


Recently on Spotify I heard that one of my favourite songs by artist, Lana Del Rey, was available. 

I tried to search it up but couldn't find it. 

Then I went to a friend's playlist and saw it, but couldn't play it on my phone (haven't tried computer). He uses the same phone as me, but lives in the USA, so I thought maybe I couldn't play it because of my region. 


Can someone explain why it's like this?

thanks 🙂

Hi @JarodBarrow,


Any content that is missing is normally down to the record label or rights holders with holding those tracks from Spotify, sometimes to push up physical and download sales. Unfortunaltey music rights and licenses vary between countries so just because music is on Spotify does not mean it will be available to everyone.


Anyway it's never definitive - the track you want to listen may become available any time now 🙂
