Well, not only Sorting is messed up (removed) from the latest realease of Spotify, filtering is as well. You can no longer filter (ctrl-F/cmd-F) your search results, and, as with many other great features killed without explanation, we want this one back as well. Thanks!
PS. You can manually bring back the old search - including sorting and filter options - if you write "spotify:search:[search term]" in the search field.
