About Music Rights
Saavn's catalog includes tens of millions of songs, albums, and playlists, across over a dozen languages, and it's growing every day. We work directly with labels and distributors to bring you the biggest (and best) selection of music available, as fast as possible.
However, from time to time, you may discover tracks or albums on Saavn that are disabled, greyed out, or not available for listening. There are a variety of reasons this can happen, so here are some brief explanations about why they happen, and what we're doing about it:
Why are some songs and albums "Coming Soon"?
Because of our great relationship with labels and other partners, we (Saavn) are fortunate to be able to bring you early access to tons of great content, even many exclusive hear-it-first releases... but not everything. Music labels decide when their albums are officially released, until which point we can't allow the music to be played on Saavn. However, as soon as we receive the song information we post it on the site for you so you can add it to your Starred Songs, share it with friends, and getting ready for the big release. It's our way of previewing what's coming up so you can be the first to hear it!
Why are some songs and albums "Pro Only"?
Ocassionally, artists or labels may decide to restrict their content only to paying Pro subscribers. This is not unique to Saavn, and is a decision they make for their content on all services. We make every effort to avoid these cases, but it's also very important to us that we respect artists and make sure their content is made available in whatever manner they feel is best.
In these cases, the content will immediately become available to you once you sign up for Pro, so if you haven't already we encourage you to give it a try! Some great exclusive content is just another reason to add to the list of Pro benefits: saving on data charges, downloading content so you can listen offline, and removing all ads! Pro is simply the best way to experience your music on Saavn.
What about songs I used to have that are now missing or "Unavailable"?
Rest assured, your playlists are never changed or deleted, even if some music becomes unavailable. We have all your playlists safely saved, in their entirety; any disabled tracks will automatically be restored the instant they become available. In most cases, you should still see those songs in your lists with an "Unavailable tag next to them.
