Spotify: What’s up with random songs not playing?

Spotify America

Update: August 2, 2011
Spotify appears to have fixed the random songs not playing issue. Over the past two weeks I haven’t run into a song that hasn’t played successfully. In fact, songs that previously wouldn’t play now play perfectly. Kudo’s to the Spotify team for getting the issues figured out. Now if they could somehow integrate a built in mini-player for Premium users…

I recently signed up for a premium account with Spotify. Overall, I’ve enjoyed the service so far. However, now that I’m a paying customer I’m pissed off that some tracks won’t play. No, I’m not talking about the tracks that aren’t licensed to play in the United States. Spotify usually provides an alert when that happens. Rather, I’m referring to those songs that simply don’t play at all and no reason is given.

Apparently I’m not the only one experiencing this problem. Perform a simple search on Twitter and I noticed others are having the same issue.

Has anyone received an official response yet?
