Create New Playlist Now Leads With Album Name, Not Artist Name

Create New Playlist Now Leads With Album Name, Not Artist Name

I've noticed that in the past two weeks or so, when saving an album or track as a new playlist (using Spotify desktop for Mac), the new playlist is created in the following format: Album/Track Name - Artist. 


For the past... oh, I don't know, many years, new playlists were created with the following format: Artist - Album/Track Name. 


Small nuisance, but really, really screws with the user's experience if that user has her or his playlists ordered by artist. Ya dig? 


It's the little things, kids. Don't **bleep** with the little things.

Hey @globalksp.


Thanks for getting in touch!


There's been a change in the formatting of the title of a playlist when you add an album to a playlist. If youre not happy about it, we'd love to hear from you in the Ideas section.


You can always rename the playlist after you create it.


Let us know if you have further questions. Have a nice day!

It would be nice to have the option to choose how you want the playlist name to be formatted. Manually changing the names of new playlists is an annoying extra step.  

Spotify (2023) when you right click and add a playlist from an album,  it still names it like "playlist 1074" 

This has been a giant problem with their web app for years now and they show no signs of fixing it any time soon unfortunately.
