[Your Library] Bring Spotify's old UI back

So Spotify for whatever reason decided to make the app as inconvenient as possible. The previous set up before this new update was so easy to navigate, find the artist, songs, radio stations, and podcasts whenever I hit the library icon. Now I have to search for and add all these artists basically all over again and frankly I'm pretty mad about it to the point where I want to cancel my subscription. Whats even more frustrating is trying to contact Spotify themselves so I can complain in hopes of actually getting something done about this is like a game and seemingly impossible to get a direct hold of. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. Can someone please help fix this? I just want the old spotify back.

Hey Folks,

Thanks for adding your feedback and votes to this idea. We seem to be getting a lot of different ideas in this thread so we'll try to address a few of them here, but as a heads up we have an extensive blog about the changes to Your Library here.

We wanted to highlight that your Recently Played section can now be found on the home screen. Additionally, it's also possible to sort your Albums, Artists and Playlist by Recently Added. To do so, pull down to reveal the search bar, click the 'filters' options and then select 'Recently Played'. You'll also spot some other filter options, like 'Name' so you can sort your playlists alphabetically.

The update has also brought changes to your Liked songs. Previously this was a section in Your Library, but now they'll appear as a playlist called Liked Songs at the top of the Playlists section for fast access. When you Like or Save an album, we add it to Your Library but we don’t automatically add all songs to your Liked songs. You can Like songs individually to add them to the playlist, or click the ‘Like All Songs’ option in the 3-dot menu to save them all at once.

Whilst not part of this update, we've seen a few mentions about where Radio has moved too. You can find it by going to any artist, album, playlist, or song, clicking the three dots and selecting 'Go to Radio'.

If you have any specific questions about how the new update works, feel free to post in our help boards here.

Thanks!

New artist library is awful..... how easier can it be than being able to shuffle play an artist who's tracks & albums we have saved! Answer is it can't be!! Hence why spotify has needlessly complicated it!!! Under OUR artists library should be all the tracks&albums we have sa

Hence why spotify has needlessly complicated it!!! Under OUR artists library should be all the tracks&albums WE have saved!!  Not the artists homepage!!! We do that in our own time!!! Yet u give option to shuffle play on their homepage where there will be tracks we might not like and didn't save!!!! Why should we have to create a playlist for artists when we have already saved their stuff before!!! We could just click shuffle play on our collection!! Why change it?! Why?!! It's not even easy to create playlists via our album library!!!! Get it back to how it was!!!

Not on an official way. I forgot the page. It's in this thread a few weeks
ago. It's a site where you can download all old versions of spotify.

It is dodgy. Also, why would you continue to give spotify money after they screw you over? Stop encouraging them and funding them to keep doing it.

I agree with other Spotify users. I hate the new look and feel of the library on my android as a family premium member. Please think of a better solution for all users.

It took 3 months but I finally got the new awful UI today. Sigh.

Any updates on this spotify? It hasn't been addressed in any idea monthly roundup, even though it's been voted higher than lots of other ideas.
