How to listen to Spotify on iPod Touch 4 generation?

According to Spotify websites, Spotify is available on 5th generation iPod Touch or above with iOS 9 and above, but some people say I can install an old version of Spotify on my 4th generation iPod Touch. When I try to install Spotify app from App Store, I got this “The current version requires iOS 9.0 or later, but you can download the last compatible version.” However, when I click install, I got this “Spotify Music could not be downloaded at this time.” This is very frustrating. I really want to listen to Spotify songs on this iPod touch while I am running. Are there any other ways?
