Nudity in artwork

This is starting to bug me...

 

lately, a  band named "E-Rotic" has started showing up in my radio queue. The problem isn't the music, but the album art. All of the images are cartoon art of naked women.

 

It's one thing for an artist to have suggestive artwork, but this is going to just a little beyond the bounds of good taste, and there doesn't seem to be a way to hide these images. If I have Spotify up on the screen when this song comes up, there's this image... 

 

... and I listen at work. I simply can't have that up on my screen.  For now, I'm having to "solve" the problem by turning off my iPhone's screen after making a change, but it's really annoying to have to unlock the phone just to change tracks or look at who's playing.

 

Is there any option to hide pornographic artwork? Are there guidelines for artwork on Spotify?

It's beyond stupid that this hasn't been addressed. The real irony is that the dumb **bleep**s at Spotify censor cursing in comments, but won't respond to simple requests from their users to hide borderline pornographic material that can get people in real trouble (e.g., sexual harassment claims for obscene photos displayed at work or school). But, oh well, **bleep** 'em. I took my business elsewhere.

Put your phone face down at work.

or make some other app or the home screen the active one.

Or perhaps Spotify could just add a simple feature that could save me the hassle of playing hide-the-un-**bleep**ing-wanted-semi-pornagraphic-bull-**bleep**-that-could-get-me-fired in the first place? Or not. I don't care. I've taken my business elsewhere.
