I think it would be extremly helpfull to also have the option to make folders in your albums and artists. This option is now only available for playlists. Making it necesary to make a playlist for each album if you want to organize them. 


There should be an option to make folders in your albums overview, and your artists overview to make organizing your music a quick and easy tasks.

Totally agreed!  "Playlists" are almost useless for my listening needs.  I want to, for example, have a folder of albums by Django Reinhart, or Bach or Sigur Ros. Or an album of top favorite *albums.*  


Without this, it takes many clicks, much typing and a lot of patience to drill down to the content you want to hear.  

Hi @Spot__On,


Thanks for reaching out about this!


What we'd recommend is using the sorting filter to find the artists/albums you'd like to hear easier.


Spotify constantly strives to improve the user experience with its features and the easiest way to achieve this is by regular app updates. That’s why we appreciate you taking the time to share your suggestion with the Community.

sorting is entirely unhelpful and in no way the same thing as folders. 

it would be very helpful to be able to put albums and artists into folders.


please add this functionality. 

I, too, would very much like to have the option of organising my artists and albums into folders.

Also, and this has been discussed many times over, the option to sort albums per artist in reverse chronological order.

Dear Ovidescu,


If you are very much desiring this option of making folders for albums, just as I do,**bleep**.

I would like to start a marketing campaign in order to achieve this option.

Best regards, Dave

Albums is my place to go in my library when I want to listen to something. And it would be most helpful if I could organize my saved albums in custom folders, e.g. "chill out", "classical", "jazz", "progressive" etc etc. That would really boost my spotify experience. As it is now, I hesitate to save many albums in my library because then it is hard to navigate among many disparate genres/styles. When I'm in a classical mood, it would be great to be able to pick among only such albums of my library, instead of browsing through all of them. Please add this feature!

Hey @Dionysis,

I saw that the idea originally presented is now marked as 'case closed' due to not meeting the threshold to be taken forward (see here), which is a real shame as I think it would be a fantastic feature, and one I feel many people would value - I've resubmitted it as an idea here so let's get advocating for this and get the 500+ votes needed for Spotify to reconsider...!!!
