Where did my music go?

If you discover something you followed or saved is missing from Your Music / Your Library, don’t panic! Here are some common causes. 

Content removed from Spotify

It could be that licensing agreements with the artist/label, or ownership of the music itself, has changed. This can result in content being removed while new agreements are negotiated. A quick search should reveal whether it’s still available.

Your Music / Your Library limit reached

It might be that you’ve hit the save limit. Each account can save up to 10,000 songs in Your Music / Your Library. Saving albums also goes towards this limit as the sum of its track total + 1. 

Reaching this limit prevents you from saving additional content. You can check how many songs are currently saved in Your Music / Your Library via the desktop app:

  • Go to Songs under Your Music.
  • Select all. 
    • Cmd+A (Mac)
    • Ctrl+A (Windows)
  • Click to drag (the number should appear next to your cursor).​

Tip: You can free up space by removing existing content from Your Music / Your Library. Alternatively, there’s no limit to the amount of playlists you can create/follow so you can move some saved content into a playlist instead.

Content saved on wrong account

It’s possible you accidentally saved the content to Your Music / Your Library on another Spotify account you have. Make sure you log in correctly, or check our guide to finding any other accounts.
