Find what you’re looking for with Search.

Enter anything you want to find, including:

  • Songs
  • Albums
  • Artists
  • Playlists
  • Podcast shows and episodes 
  • Videos
  • Genres and moods
  • Other Spotify users
    Note: If you can’t find another user by typing their name, it’s likely they don’t have a display name. Try searching spotify:user: followed by their Spotify username instead (with no spaces).

On mobile and tablet, you’ll also find recommended music and podcasts under various categories in Search, plus Radio and Concerts too. 

Advanced search

Try an advanced search to find music by year, genre, or label. You can also exclude results, or look for 2 things at once.

Advanced search options

Enter any of these before your search term to narrow the results.

  • year: Displays music from a particular year. You can also enter a range of years, for example year:1978-1984.
  • genre: Displays music in the genre matching keyword.
  • label: Displays music released by the label matching keyword.
  • isrc: Displays tracks matching ID number according to the International Standard Recording Code.
  • upc: Displays albums matching ID number according to the Universal Product Code.

Exclude or add search terms

Refine your search with ANDOR, and NOT, for example:

  • Kyuss AND Green - Displays results with keywords 'Kyuss' and 'Green'.
  • Zeppelin OR Floyd - Displays results with keywords 'Zeppelin' or 'Floyd'.
  • Metallica NOT Anger - Displays all Metallica tracks except with the word 'Anger'. 

Tip: Instead of using AND or NOT, you can also use + or -.

Combine searches

Use any combination of the advanced search options to find exactly what you want!

  • year:1989-2013 NOT year:1993

    Note: This particular example may not yield many results.
