Hey! Looks like you're offline. We've made sure you can still read some of our articles!

Why can't I find the music I'm looking for?

We want all the world’s music on Spotify, but some artists and tracks are currently not available (or are available in one country and not in another). 

Reasons for this vary: Agreements with artists or labels may be ongoing or can’t be reached, or ownership of rights can change hands.

New content is added to Spotify every day. If you can’t find something you’re looking for now, it may appear (or reappear) soon!

What about Podcasts & Videos?

Licensing and ownership constraints can also apply to non-musical content, such as podcasts and videos.

What about mixtapes?

We know some artists make their own mixtapes freely available online. But to put it on Spotify, we still need to license it.

Artists submit their music to Spotify via an aggregator and we’re more than happy to upload it, but it’s up to the submitter to gain permission from all the individual rights holders to use their music in this way.
