Wrong artist/title when playing a new Amyl and the Sniffers song

It doesn't matter if you play it through Spotify or with an MP3 (itunes, winamp), but if I play the song "Got You" by Amyl and the Sniffers it's automatically counted as a play of "Electricity" by an artist I've never heard of, someone called Cort Carpenter. Is it possible there's a very strange (and hidden) re-direct between the two somewhere?
Note that if you navigate to the expected URL:
https://www.last.fm/music/Amyl+and+the+Sniffers/_/Got+You
it gets redirected without any warning to
https://www.last.fm/music/Cort+Carpenter/_/Electricity


Thanks in advance!

That's weird... It's something the last.fm team should check.

I'm having the same issue today in fact. I was playing on Spotify a song "Sweet Talker" by a band 'The Pink Slips' and on last.fm its coming up as a band 'Futurecop! - Voltrana'. You cannot even go to the Sweet Talker page as it redirects to this obviously unrelated band.
Making things even more strange The Pink Slips song is a recently released song. And the Futurecop! Song, has 0 listeners and 0 scrobbles

This seems like a strange issue and isn't being caused by a conventional redirect, I've passed this on to the team.

Triggered by a notification mail because of your reply, I visited this topic and retried the link just in case, and it seems to be working properly now. Not sure how permanent it is though (it still didn't work two days ago when I checked it). Same with the issue mentioned by Jaimie Rain; seems to be gone now.
