ncspot is another amazing option if you're comfortable with the terminal.

If you want to run Spotify on a Raspberry (or PinePhone or some other device), there’s Spot, which is great, but kinda heavy and slow. There’s Spotify-qt which is faster, requires messing with Spotify developer dashboard, and UI doesn’t fit on small screens. Spotify-qt is itself based on Spotify-tui which runs in the terminal (pretty cool IMO). And a bare client/daemon is spotifyd. So you have quite a few choices there.
Flatpak Spotify vs Tab in Firefox browser

Would like to add that you can also use clients such as spotify-qt and Spotify TUI to control said "device". There's also Spot and psst that are standalone (librespot not required but no Connect functionality).
What are some alternatives?
spotify-qt - Lightweight Spotify client using Qt
ncspot - Cross-platform ncurses Spotify client written in Rust, inspired by ncmpc and the likes.
Cider - A new cross-platform Apple Music experience based on Electron and Vue.js written from scratch with performance in mind. 🚀
psst - Fast and multi-platform Spotify client with native GUI
spotify-tui - Spotify for the terminal written in Rust 🚀
librespot - Open Source Spotify client library
SwSpotify - Cross-platform library to get the currently playing song and artist from Spotify w/o using the API or the internet. Very fast.
DownOnSpot - 🎧 A Spotify music and playlist downloader working with free Spotify accounts written in Rust
oggify - Download Spotify tracks to Ogg Vorbis (with a premium account)
spotblock-rs - A spotify advertisment muter for Pipewire
