[Search] Bring back Advanced Search

Up until recently, users were able to refine their search by using advanced options which are, sadly, no longer available.

I'm a musicologist, and small features such as being able to search by record label are quite important for me, as it should be for anyone who is not just a passive consumer of music! If you also believe that we need this feature back, support this thread.

Updated on 2018-09-24

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for coming to the Spotify Community.

 

We're happy to confirm that Advanced Search is now available on Mobile and Desktop. 

For example, searching by 'year:', or 'label:'.

 

All the best,

/M

They have brought back the label and genre searches - but not the time-based ones (year and tag:new)

Oh wow!  Artist, track, album, genre, label , isrc all working.  Only year and tag not working.

 

Great to see they have actually listened.

Soundofus

Sorry, but search by year is also a major feature.

 Thank you, Spotify, for having restored label search!

Oh great news! Hopefully they get the last bit done as well, i.e. combined search with year:"yyyy"

Go Spotify go- you made my day 😘

I use to search for new bands in the website The Metal Archives. They have a great Advanced search tool wich allows me to search by lyrical theme, location, etc...

Very very useful.

"title:" is still disabled by Spotify
