Spotify runs background processes when app is closed

djmtype

Even after I close out Spotify on my device, under Apps > Running, there are 6 Spotify services still running in the background.

 

I have Spotify's Offline mode enabled, so there are no notifications coming in, nor do not have any Spotify widgets active.  

 

If I power off/on my phone, these processes are no longer running only until I launch Spotify again. 

 

Is there a reason why Spotify needs to run processes after the app has been closed? These kind of background processes are deteriorating my battery life.
