How Come Free Me (the full album) is not on Spotify???

I can't find on Emma's Spotify profile her second album.
How come AGLM and LIM are available but Free Me?

The UK iTunes only has A Girl Like Me and Life In Mono too, which is weird because I use iTunes Match and it matched the whole Free Me album, so they have it on their database even if it doesn't appear on the stores.


Was it released in your country? There's no sign of both Free Me and Life In Mono on the Spanish iTunes. Only What I Am (single), A Girl Like Me (album) and Free Me (single).

'Free Me' is on Spotify but it's under Emma, not Emma Bunton.

^ same as here. Only difference I have What I Am and We re Not Gonna Sleep Tonight.

I dont think it s a problem of local release, though. I can easily find Stages, even though it wasn't released in Italy.

At any rate, I have Free Me cause I m following a playlist featuring it. Try following me. Maybe I'll be lucky in finding Life In Mono!

It is very strange that the album or single is not on iTunes especially since the singles Maybe, I'll be there and Crickets sing are all on there, although they are on under Emma rather than Emma Bunton which is stupid as people won't search for 'Emma'

I find it weird that the record label would put up Life In Mono and not Free Me. Also it's a bit of a waste since I would've thought Free Me and Northern Star are the two solo albums likely to get a few random downloads here and there as they are the only two that gained critical praise and were deemed to be strong albums.

Last time I looked Free Me was on Spotify but under 'Emma' and not 'Emma Bunton'. However, Life In Mono has gone :(

Try looking for "Emma Free Me", I just checked and it does come up on Spotify for me. There's no sign of "Life In Mono" though.

^ That could be the problem for those unable to find "Free Me". On the album and singles her name is Emma rather than Emma Bunton.

I've noticed with other artists that some of their albums show up and others don't. Then you get the really random albums on there by artists that aren't signed to labels. My friend Kat McGivern had two albums/EPs on there, both available on iTunes, then her oldest one showed up out of nowhere. I'm not sure how Spotify gets its music as that album wasn't even on iTunes. Maybe it showed up on there randomly, but I feel like she would have let me know as I'm her #1 fan as she has dubbed me.

Free Me is not on iTunes, not even as "Emma" which, btw, isn't a weird iTunes/management decision but happens because Emma was on that weird moment where she decided to be just "Emma". I guess for legal reasons they can't have it under "Emma Bunton" on the digital stores.

Still, Free Me (album) must be available in some random country on iTunes because iTunes Match doest indeed match it.

I had never checked out Emma on iTunes, since I own all her CDs. But I just looked her up out of curiosity, and on iTunes Belgium they apparently only sell her album "A Girl Like Me" lol How weird!

I don't have Spotify, but I understand that many artists / labels don't really want to be on there because they only earn peanuts with it. Since Emma isn't a big seller anyway (let's be honest), I suppose her label figured there was no point.

In the States, Free Me was available on iTunes near when the store and the album first launched, but was taken down many years ago. No idea why. Some of Mel C's videos are gone, too.

Why hasn't Emma done dance features? Seriously...

I bet Calvin Harris would put her on a track without hesitation. Her voice was and still is pure ear candy.

Everyone wanted to work with Emma. Darkchild, Jam and Lewis. They've all said they wanted and and believed they could create miracles with Emma! It's mainly Emma who doesn't believe in that.

I've no doubt that Emma would just need to be asked, by anyone let alone Calvin, and she would jump at the chance to do guest vocals! It's obvious how much she loves singing and performing, she just needs a nudge here and there.

Dance features? Because noawdays the music industry is all about being 'fierce' and Emma is just too sweet for their liking I guess. Which sucks ugh
