My Question or Issue

Recently (maybe 6 weeks) a feature I used a lot seems to have broken. I listen to music from a large playlist (~3,000 songs) which is sorted by Recently Added. 

 

I used to be able to click the album art of the currently playing track and it would instantly take me to that track in my playlist. However now all it does is fling me to a random track down near the bottom of the playlist. Since I'm generally listening to songs near the top this is highly frustrating as it means a lot of scrolling waaaaaay back up to the top to find my place again.

 

Just making sure this bug is logged and hopefully fixed as it was always a quick and easy way to get back to what I was doing after browsing through related artists, bios, other playlists, etc.

I also have a playlist with 3,750 songs and clicking album art does not take me to the current song but instead a random song. Doesn't matter how my list is sorted (or not sorted at all), it will do this. I've tried going to different playlists and still happens. Please fix as it is hard to interact with my large playlist when I have to manually find the song each time.

Interesting that this still happens no matter how the playlist is sorted - I had presumed it was related to sorting by recent but I was too terrified of something breaking to experiment!

Don't understand how an obvious bug like this hangs around for so long. This happens across all my devices. Anytime I want to remove the current song from a long playlist I have to scroll up to the top and TYPE OUT the name of the song in the filter, then right click and remove.

It's incredibly frustrating! Add yourself to this thread which Spotify claims is being used to help solve the issue: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Desktop-Clicking-on-album-art-highlights-wrong-song...

I have the same problem.

 

A similar bug has been filed here as well:

They are marked as solved but they are definitely not solved.

 

Apparently clicking the album art jumps to the correct track in the playlist if the playlist is unsorted. But almost always it's sorted in some way or another and then it jumps to a 'random' track.

 

Does not look like this is intentional behaviour at all. Would love to have this fixed because I used to use it a lot.

Infuriating. I consider switching to Deezer due too much Spotify bugs. But this one takes the cake of most frustrating one.
