Push the bottom left (all open apps) and use the X close on the Spotify display. – Tim W Mar 15 at 1:00
The bottom left of what? Do you mean long-press the Menu button? – Matthew Read Mar 15 at 1:42

In Android it's not necessary to stop and close apps manually. Android manages the state of applications in the background, when an app is not actively performing a task. If the device needs memory for a new application, Android closes the least active app still in the background to make room for it. As a result if you open an application that was still in the background, it can now open much faster. In the case of Spotify, it remains paused in the background until you open it again, or the device needs memory for another application.
