My Question or Issue

I have a playlist with 2,500+ songs, but recently I've found the shuffle function is far from random. Most songs haven't once come up in around a month of regular (3-4h a day) usage, and yet I've had many songs repeat 2-3 times in a given day, and a handful of songs come up at least once a day, every day often twice.

 

To add to this, the shuffle algorithm often seems to find the same "path" through songs when changing devices, i.e. if I transfer from playing on the Google Home to over bluetooth in the car, the first few times shuffling will have the same few songs in order as at some point in the shuffle "path" with the Home.
