Playback is in wrong order after sorting "See all songs" in a search


Playback is in wrong order after sorting "See all songs" in a search

Casual Listener

This is for Spotify on Windows 10. Can't sort songs in searches on Android, so not sure if it applies to other platforms. 


If you search for a song, and click on "See all songs", you can play any of them; if you sort the list and click on the first song, it still plays the song listed as the first one prior to sorting. 


To reproduce/example:

  1. Search for "I Wish"
  2. Select "See All"
  3. The first one in the results should be "I Wish You Were Here" by HRVY, the second "I Wish" by Stevie Wonder. 
  4. Sort by Title. (You can sort by any field, the result is still the same.)
  5. The first song listed is now "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes" by Lily James. 
  6. Try to play it, and notice that the client starts playing the HRVY song, even though it is now in the middle of the list. Same if you play the second song by Anthem Lights, which makes Spotify start playing Stevie Wonder.
