My Question or Issue

 

I often sort my long playlists alphabetically by the artist name. I sometimes also create playlists with alphabetical themes or based on the first letters of the artist's or band's name. For example artists beginning with a, b, c and d.

 

Now I've noticed that in some recent update the alphabetical ordering has been changed. For example, all the bands with "The" in their names like The Beatles and The Beach Boys are now listed under T.

 

This is, of course, not unheard of but quite unusual. If you go to a library, you don't usually look for The Beatles under the letter T but under the letter B because The is such a common word.

 

Why was this changed and will this be fixed to normal at some point?

Hey @Warsova

 

Don't worry, I'm here to help. First things first, may I ask what version of Spotify you are running?
