Wasn't too sure of the correct topic for this post so please advise if it would be better suited elsewhere.
The issue is as follows: going to, Browse - Genres & Moods - Country, brings up the genre page with playlists and what are supposedly 'newly' released albums in this genre. However, the latest releases never update, they are all albums and EPs from 2018 (Kacey Musgraves' Golden Hour etc.), as visible from the attached screenshot. It's the same whether I'm on my MacBook or using the iPhone app which makes me think this isn't an issue particular to only myself.
Is it just that this isn't a particularly popular genre so no one puts any effort into updating it? I would love to check out and keep up with new releases in country music but this feature is not the way to do it, in fact it is pretty much a redundant feature at this point. Other genres (eg. Pop) are updated much more regualrly for example you can find Taylor Swift's new album, Ariana Grande's new song and many more actual new releases in that genre.
I would like to find out if it is the same for other users and if so why has Spotify neglected this aspect of the genre page for country music?
