New Releases are gone!????

Mysterio
Music Fan

Hi, 

Today I have updated Spotify to the latest version. And I've noticed with shock that the "new releases" are simply gone!

 

There is now "Discover", but the new releases are no longer found there.

 

How can I get back again the new releases?

Hi there @Mysterio!

You can still search new releases by putting "tag:new" in the search bar.

Well first of all thx for your answers!

 

Unfortunately "tag:new" does not really work, since it does not show

- single releases

- a list view instead of album covers

 

 

Furthermore, the list is endless and includes many duplicates!

 

First, I am going to help me with the following pages:

http://pansentient.com/new-on-spotify/

http://spotifyreleases.com/?region=de&date=2013-07-05

If Spotify continues to worsen with each update, I'll switch to the new alternative Ampya

What's New has been removed from Spotify, and it isn't coming back.

 

You can get to what's new by typing spotify:app:home into the search bar, however there is no guarantee as to how long that'll last.

 

The best way to find new releases it to search tag:new - although this takes a while to update.

I actually just tried tag:new and found a single by bloc party. Guessing it probably doesnt show all new singles but it does at least show some 😃

I would like to see new releases again in some form.  Just received the Discover "update".

 

While Discover may be nice for people that don't really have a lot of music knowledge, for music lovers, it seems just to recommend either bands I already know, like, and have no need to "check out" or just less spectacular bands that list cool bands as their influences.

 

I think a Discover / Whats New option to show either would be cool, or just keep both, I'm ok with having both, as long as I can steal see new releases...

For the moment, you can use this to launch spotify, opened to what's new. Drag the link to your desktop to make life easier.

You can get New Releases back by typing this in the search area: spotify:app:home
