We currently can sort our music by Title, Artist, and Recently Added.
The ability to sort by Album/Song Release Date and Play Count would be welcomed!

Thank you for your feedback.At this time we do not have any plans to do this. If anything changes we'll come back here and post an update.
Marked as New Idea and edited title, as sorting Your Music by release date has been suggested here. You may also be interested in this idea.
In addition to this idea I suggest the following:
Release date is one thing, but what if you don't know it. But most time I remember a time when a song was popular. This "two" dates may be different. So it's the question what is the criteria to say what makes a song being popular for a certain period. There must be some kind of charts. The used charts may vary from time to time caused by changing consumer habits and technology.
So in history (... 70s, 80s 90s) it has been billboard or media control charts (sorted by country, genre ...) radio statistics (annual, monthly, weekly charts).
In my opinion many people copy playlists from this criteria. If there were general playlists like this you could add them without building them. You could limit yourself to extract personal favourite songs to own playlists.
A personal play counter could be used also to enhance shuffle mode, queueing first the tracks played less.
THIS! By release date would be awesome!
Thanks for coming to the exchange to let us know you'd like to see this feature. At the moment we don't have plans for this so we're marking it as 'Not Right Now'. It's still open for kudos though so please keep voting and we'll keep passing your feedback to the teams at Spotify.
This would be a great feature. Many people play their favourite music most often and sort albums in your music by most played would be very useful.
Until then, do you have a fast way of finding out which songs we listen to least? I am trying to clean up my 1500+ song library.
Who wouldn't want their favorite music at the top? This seems like the most logical sorting option to me.
Absolutely needed. was pretty surprised to find that this feature doesn't exist.
