Trying to download any song from the album "Reconstruction Site" by the Weakerthans triggers this error message: "Private playlists cannot be downloaded."
I'm downloading from the artist page, not from any playlist. The songs can still be collected, just not downloaded.
This is the only album I can find with this problem. Googling the error message returns 0 results.
mod edit: changed title for clarity
Hi there, @hoolatehip. 👋
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble.
Can you post a screenshot of the exact error message you're seeing?
Let me know. 🎧
The error message appears after tapping the Download button.
Thanks so much for sharing that screenshot, @hoolatehip.
Looks like this song is unavailable for offline listening at this time. Although the majority of the songs in our collection will be eligible to be played without restrictions, you may encounter a portion of songs that are unavailable or labeled "Radio Only" due to our current licensing restrictions. In the meantime, you can create a station that will play similar songs and artists, based on an artist or a particular song.
We are continuously working on increasing the amount of songs which can be played on stations, on-demand, or offline. Our intention is to provide enough music you enjoy to avoid any inconvenience around this.
I recently reactivated my account and tried to redownload all of my old songs. But every single song I try to download comes up with the error "Private Playlists can't be downloaded"
I know they aren't private cause I downloaded them before. I can download songs I've never downloaded but any of my old downloads just can't be redownloaded
