[All Platforms][Browse] Get all songs from artist

When you go to an artist's page, you find a lot of information from the artist: top 5 songs, albums, singles & EPs, lives, etc. Very useful.

However, it would be absolutely great to have a list of all the songs by this artist.
A lot of people have asked for this. On communities such as Reddit or Twitter, or along my friends, some people say they prefer Deezer or Google Play Music just because they have this feature.
You know, when you look at an artist's page, you have the top few albums and you can click on "show more" to display a page with all the albums. We simply want this, but with all the songs.

You could say that the Songs tab of the research page does this.  When you type the name of an artist, you can navigate to this tab to find al lsongs related. However, there are two main problems with this solution:
- You have to actually type the artist name in the search bar and go to the tab. Very annoying if you use Spotify on your phone while walking for instance;
- You don't end up with only the songs from the artist, but all the songs that contain the artist's name in their information. This is problematic.

For instance, if you look up French singer "Manu Chao" and navigate to this tab, you will find all the songs made by this artist, but also a song called "Manu Chao" made by a band called "Les Wampas".
Other example: if you look up "Rolling Stones" and go to the "Songs" tab, you can find among results all the songs by that band, but also "Like a Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan.


What we want is really simple: in the artist page, just add a "view all songs" button/link that leads to a list of all the songs by this artist. It should be fairly easy to do so and you would make a lot of people happy, me included.

The worst part is that they actually used to have this! They got rid of it, against every user's preference, and refuse to put it back. And to think the suggestions here will ever have an impact on this feature's reimplementation is a pipe dream. The voting system is specifically designed such that good ideas get buried by other new ideas before there are enough votes to make them count, and that duplicate ideas spread those votes out even further. I don't know the reasoning behind spotify's refusal to make some blatantly useful changes, but alas, they won't. **bleep** you can't even actually shuffle all of an artist's tracks. The "shuffle all" button doesn't include singles and EPs, apparently.
