Why do tracks in Your Music/Your Library sometimes disappear?

If you discover a track, album, or artist is suddenly missing from Your Music/Your Library, don’t panic! It might 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. If a track, album, or artist has been removed from Spotify, hopefully it’ll reappear soon. A quick search should reveal whether it’s still available.
  • You’ve hit the save limit. Each account can save up to 10,000 songs in Your Music/Your Library. Reaching this limit prevents you from saving additional content. To check how many songs are currently saved in Your Music (desktop):
    • 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).
  • It was added to Your Music/Your Library on another Spotify account. Check our guide to finding any other accounts.

Note: You can free up space by removing existing content from Your Music/Your Library.

If you haven’t reached the save limit and still see the missing content available on Spotify, try reinstalling the app.

Tip: There’s no limit to the amount of playlists you can create/follow. To free up space in Your Music/Your Library, why not move some saved content into a playlist?
