    Need to Know: Spotify Ends Auto-Shuffle For Albums

    Spotify has ended automatically shuffling albums when users hit play. 


    The move comes after Adele asked the streaming giant to change this feature because artists purposefully placed their songs in a specific order. She believes that shuffling the albums automatically does not give fans the full scope of the message they are trying to convey. 


    In a tweet on Saturday, the “30” singer wrote, “Our art tells a story, and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you, Spotify, for listening.” 


    When users click “Play” in Album View, songs will play in order. However, if they still prefer to listen to the records in random order, the “Shuffle” option will still be available in the individual track view. Many Spotify users expressed disdain for this new feature, arguing that it no longer allows them to enjoy the music the way they want to.





    For all of the indie artists out there, this feature does not only benefit the likes of megastar Adele. It also protects the creative integrity of your projects. Be sure to inform your fans of this new Spotify feature. Otherwise, there’s nothing much that needs to be done on your end.
