[All Platforms] Bring back a normal artists page

The artists page in My Library as it has been updated is now counterintuitive and cumbersome. Rather than having a typical layout of the artists a user enjoys being displayed in a particular order depending on a filter e.g Artist Name, Number of Songs etc... you have a following list and a recommended list. 

 

Following seems to be as it states, Artists you are following on the platform, while recommended is all of the artists you have saved songs for without following them.  While initially this doesn't seem problematic, you cannot filter the "recommended artists" list and as a result they appear in the order deemed applicable by the applications algorithms. You can however filter the followed artists list, which makes little to no sense that one can be filtered and the other cannot. Especially when you consider that this is intended to be the list of artists you have songs saved for.

 

To follow on, this makes going back through your artists list in your library extremely frustrating as not only is it no longer organised but to organise it you must then follow every artist which means consenting to notifications regarding every single artist in your list even if you only enjoy a handful of songs or even just a single offering. 

 

A more applicable solution would be to keep the followed list as a different tab and then have a "Saved Artists" tab where you can view and filter a list of all artists you have saved media from without having to follow the artist.
