How to Delete Songs on Spotify

Updated February 21, 2017

Spotify is a music service and program that combines streaming and your music library to enhance your listening experience. Music purchased as part of a download bundle is stored in your Spotify library as MP3s, and is permanently saved in the Spotify program. If you wish to remove purchased songs, you can do so through the program's library to remove it from your local library. Once removed, local files no longer appear in your library, and cannot be played if they were previously added to a playlist in Spotify.
