Filtering through a playlist does not work

So this recently started happening with one of the more recent app updates .Previously when I was in my main playlist I could filter for a specific song/artist/etc. And whatever I typed would get filtered out so only the ones that had the same words I typed would remained .and I could just play all the songs in that little search while still being in my main playlist .NOW. I can still filter it just the same. But when I try to press a song to play from that filtered search. The wrong song plays. In fact, the song that would have played if there was no search/filter plays .  For example I keep my playlist in alphabetical order by track bame (so tracks that start with numbers go first then a, b, c etc) . If I searched through my playlist for j Cole and selected the first track in that specific search result of my playlist .Instead of hearing that song 0-100 by Drake would start playing. Because that's at the top of the whole playlist . And this happens any time I search/filter through any of my playlists .and i can't fix it and I really hate it.  Also adding I've had premium for a while, I'm loyal man I deserve better than this

Also if I'm shuffling music then I decide to pick a specific song it takes me out of shuffle mode now. Instead of just shuffling again after the dpecifsp song I selected...does that happen to you too?

Another premium user here. Pixel 2. This is a consistent bug. Easily replicated.

I have large playlists that I like to filter by artist so this is a very frusterating issue. :) I'm sure you guys are working to get this fixed. Thanks!

I also have started to have this issue as of late last week.

Yup. I noticed this 3 days ago. 

 

I have a giant playlist of Beatles songs that also includes all the solo works of the various members. The Beatles albums are all organized from their last album released (Let it Be) to their last (Please Please Me). The rest of the songs follow that order starting with John's stuff, then Paul's, George's, and finally Ringo's.

 

No matter what I search, Two of Us (first song of Let it Be) and beyond are the songs that will actually play. The newest update pushed out today didn't fixed it either.

I created a playlist so that I could reoder tracks since it's way too easy to accidently delete a song from your library which then screws up the order of the songs.

After creating this and putting all my songs (over 300) into the playlist, when I search for a particular artist and play a song from the filtered results I would expect the next item in the filtered results to play. But this doesn't happen and it plays the songs that would be next if I didn't have the filter...

 

Let me know if you need anymore details, i'm able to give screenshots if necessary.
