Why are my Spotify tracks live after removal?

Keep your worries at bay, grey it will stay!

Once RouteNote have processed your removal request, you may be wondering why you can still find it on Spotify.

After you have requested your release to be removed from Spotify, please allow 7 – 14 days for the takedown process to complete. Spotify are usually quite quick, but we like to make sure the removal process has completely finished before taking any further action.

Even after 14 days you might still be able to view it via a direct link if you have saved the URL – if this is the case, don’t worry! Your release will be greyed out, unplayable, unsearchable and no longer visible on your artist page.

If you are having trouble with a removed release, or you have any questions, please contact our support team.
