My Question or Issue
This issue showed up when using the Spotify Desktop Client. I was choosing to broadcast to my Echo Dot, and at the conclusion of a song (not the last song on the album), Spotify started playing a track from a different album.
When I brought up the Spotify Client, it showed the "Shuffle" option as selected, and unselecting it did nothing. Furthermore, whenever I tried to select specific songs to play, Spotify started playing a completely different album than the song I selected.
Both issues persisted after closing and restarting Spotify. Switching to "This Computer" as my audio output let me turn off shuffle, but switching back to "Echo Dot" locked shuffle right back on.
Edit: The same issues occurred when I tried to use the open.spotify.com client. Restarting the Echo Dot did nothing.

Hi there @kcostell,
Thanks for the post.
Can you let us know if the speaker starts playing random songs even when you search for a specific song and click on it to play, or is it only when you play a playlist/ album?
Also, does this happen when you use voice commands such as: "Alexa, play [song] by [artist] ".
We'll be on the lookout for your reply.
