[Search] Advanced search on Release Date

We already have advanced search based on the "year:" token. Which is nice, but still too broad when your are trying to look for releases for a specific day or period in time.

 

Therefore I would like to suggest a new advanced search token based on "date:". I will give a few examples of the possible use cases of this new way of searching below.

 

Use case 1:

Find songs/albums that were released on December 1st, 2016.

Possible advanced search option:
date:20161201

 

Use case 2:

Find songs/albums that were released in February 2017.

Possible advanced search option:
date:20170201-20170228

 

This idea in combination with this one will make a killer combination, in my humble opinion.

I agree.   This is important for finding new tracks that may not have label support or that Spotify puts at the top of the feed.   Please allow user to search by date added.

Unfortuntely, it looks like the advanced search is being killed — "year:" — as well as other Advanced Search syntax no longer work.

Well, that's really awful...

Instead of making search more useful and elaborate, they decide to cripple it. Great job, Spotify. :(
