Doppelgängers

Spotify needs someway to differentiate between two different artists with the same name. It's pretty annoying when you are searching for an artist and its all a big mix of two different artists.

We're looking into an ongoing project to get this sorted - We've got a link to reporting albums on Wrong artists right here.

When I search for an artist, I expect to get a mix, then just click on the name of the one I want, to see everything by that artist. I think that is sort of the idea of searching. But maybe having them more organized would be good.

Simillarly, one artist is sometimes listed as two different artists, leading you to believe spotify doesn't have albums that it in fact does, e.g. "The Lightning Seeds" and "Lightning Seeds"

Status changed to: Duplicate Idea

Although this idea has been suggested first, I'd like to merge it with a similar idea that is slighty more informative and has already an official Spotify status here:
