Bluetooth with Spotify

I don't know what caused this to happen, but it just started happening today. I can't control the app anymore when listening to music in my car. I have a 2012 Ford Focus. It just shows this screen and doesn't do anything. How do I get it back to normal?? http://i.imgur.com/1tPzyDr.png

I emailed spotify about this the other day.

When you use Ford AppLink with Spotify you must control all Spotify menus through the car - the app is doing this to force you to initialize AppLink.

What I find odd about this is that they are doing this to cars that don't have AppLink too, for example if you don't have the latest SYNC update which afaik isn't even available to download currently from Ford.

They told me they did it as a safety feature. Force closing and reopening the app will get it working normally again, temporarily (for me at least).
