Porter Robin’s caused a bit of confusion on Tuesday (Jan. 24) when Spotify published a curated playlist called “This Is: Porter Robinson” and he responded with a tweet declaring that all other songs in his catalog are “unofficial.”

At first, fans thought that he tweet stating that “i've been making music for 12 years and i only wrote 11 songs, wow” was a sarcastic response to Spotify including only 11 songs from his extensive catalog.

He has since taken to Snapchat to clarify his reaction, saying in a string of text snaps: “don’t wanna bump that thread on twitter but because people are misunderstanding it: i am literally saying those are the only songs that i stand by. i was not being sarcastic. that was a playlist that i made to showcase the music that i feel proud of. it was not sarcasm. that tweet was 100% unprovoked by anything specific. just wanted to let you know how i feel!”

The playlist now includes 24 tracks including “Flicker,” “Easy” and “Divinity.” Check out the playlist below.
