How to Change a Spotify Region

Spotify has direct agreements with record labels and other rights holders that restrict what albums and artists users can listen to across select countries. Some songs that are available for play in your region might not be available in other locations, and vice versa. If you selected the wrong country when you set up your Spotify account, or if you've recently moved to another country, you can change your region in your profile to reflect your current location. You may need to update your payment details to make changes to your country settings.
