Hey @7350202, welcome to the Community.


Hope you are doing great!


It's not possible to remove Behind the Lyrics from Spotify. 


You can head to Settings > Behind the Lyrics > Off to stop Behind the Lyrics automatically displaying over the top of artwork. Users can manually bring Behind the Lyrics forward by swiping the artwork down. You can read more about this feature in this FAQ.


However, if you would like, you can submit it in Idea Submissions board or support it if this idea has been already submitted.


Have a nice day 🙂
