[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.

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)

Newbie

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

 

Great to see they have actually listened.

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.
