Right click an album, choose "Add to Playlist > New Playlist", and the new playlist will be named in this format:
Artist Name – Album Name
This is how Spotify has always named playlists created from albums, AFAIK.
But since some recent update, if you drag and drop an album onto the "+ New Playlist" button in the bottom left, the resulting playlist will be named in this reversed format:
Album Name – Artist Name
I think this is a bug. It will result in people's playlists being named with a mish-mash of both formats, depending on how they created them.
