Default name for playlist created from album doesn't include artist name anymore

Default name for playlist created from album doesn't include artist name anymore

Before the UI change when you created a playlist from an album the default name would be "Album name - Artist name" (at some point in the past, it used to be "Artist name - Album name" which I liked even more, but I can live with the other option as well).

When the new UI was introduced this was broken for a while and didn't generate a name at all anymore. It has been fixed recently but now only includes the album name. Please change it to how it was before so that the artist name is at least somewhere generated!

Since Spotify doesn't allow selecting and copying text inside the app it is otherwise impossible to get an artist's names for manually organizing your library expect typing it by hand.

I strongly second this complaint. It seems a little weird to make it harder to use playlists as a UI metaphor for albums. I guess the idea is to push people to do this using "Likes", but why make the other way harder? Especially when there is no downside to simply generating proper playlist titles?
