How do I add an entire artist's catalog to a playlist?

I want to create a playlist of the entire catalogs of multiple artists. This would be a workaround to the ability to create radio stations based on multiple seeds. I'd like to just be able to shuffle a station or playlist that is open to the full catalog of any number of specified artists. Any ideas?

Hey @mystereli, thanks for reaching out!

 

The best way to do this would be to head to the artist's profile on desktop, select the first track on the first  album, scroll down to the bottom of the album section, hold shift while selecting the last track on the last album. This should select all of the artist's albums. Just drag them over to a new playlist and you're done. 

 

If you just want all the tracks on an artist's profile, including singles, you can push cmd/ctrl + A and drag everything over to a new playlist.

 

We hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

Lee

This should be easier. Why not a simple "add this artist to this playlist" option?

Hey @gschanuel and everyone,

 

Just popping in to let you know that if you wish to have the option to add an entire artist's catalog to a playlist you created, you can suggest this as an idea. To do so:

 

  1. Go to the Spotify Community
  2. Click on Menu
  3. Click on Ideas > Idea submissions
  4. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click on “Let’s go

As a heads-up, it's good to know that the higher the number of votes an idea gets, the more likely it is for the idea to be implemented 🙂

 

You can also check this Spotify Answer to get to know more about how your feedback will reach Spotify through the Idea submission process.


Hope you'll find this info useful. Feel free to reach out anytime if there's anything we can help with!
