Probably Spotify Linux Client process did crash with SIGABRT. strace detects that child was killed with the signal and raises same signal for itself just before exit (like in Bug #1062412)

There is a code in strace.c (main -> terminate() ) to raise the signal which killed the traced process. Strace does it exactly before exit

 if (exit_code > 0xff) {
  /* Child was killed by a signal, mimic that. */
  exit_code &= 0xff;
  signal(exit_code, SIG_DFL);

Code was added in 2008-09-29 commit
> (main): Exit/kill ourself with straced child's exitcode/signal.
