Explicit content

It's great to hear music as the artist intended it to be heard. This means Spotify can sometimes include explicit content, so look out for the EXPLICIT label on any releases (E on the web player).

If you don’t want to hear anything explicit, you can check for the clean version of a track. Pick your device to learn how. 

Note: Some explicit content may not have a clean version available.

  1. On an album page, scroll down to the bottom of the track listings.
  2. Find more releases of the same album in the bottom-right.

    Note: If you don’t see this option, there are no other versions of the album currently available on Spotify.
  3. Choose the version of the album you'd like to listen to.

Another option is to enter the title of the explicit content into the search bar to find any versions that don’t have the explicit label.

Look out for the E (explicit) label.

If you find anything with this label, there might be a clean version available. Enter its title into the search bar to find any versions that aren’t marked as explicit.
