[All Platforms] Play/view all of an artist's songs

I find it very frustrating and annoying that I can't view and play ALL of an artist's songs at once unless I manually go and make a playlist and add all of their music. Every other music platform I ever used had this feature and I honestly can't believe that Spotify has decided to exclude this for some reason. Other than that I like the app but this is a huge oversight in my opinion. Also I've only used the Android version.

THIS! Oh my gosh I really wish this was a thing. It would also make it easier to discover songs from a specific artist. This has my vote!

This is really missing - what's the reason for NOT to have this option?

Totally Agree!  Call me crazy but when I find an awesome new artist I like to listen to all of their music in the order it was released.  Obsessive? Yes. But isn't loving and obsessing over music the whole point of Spotify?

In Spotify the only way to do this is to create a playlist and manually add songs in chronological order, which is a HUGE pain because one has to scroll up and down between "albums" and "singles", checking the release dates of each release.  It takes at least 10-15 minutes to make a chronological playlist for any artist with a lot of music (just look at Avicii and tell me it wouldn't wouldn't take forever).

Please just make an artist "list view" so one can view all their music in one list, without the album title and art dividers, and without them being separated into singles and albums.  And while you are at it, please at least add the option to include tracks the artist "appears on" to this list view.  It is a pain to have to go into the album view for each item in the "appears on" list to find remixes/collabs that the artist has made.

And I know it could be considered a separate issue, but adding the ability (it can be an optional toggle in settings) to show the release date of songs as a column so users could sort by release date would be such a small thing to save time.  Sorry, but given how simple this would be to implement, how it could be added as an optional setting, and how much time it would save people who want it, I simply don't understand why it hasn't happened.  The amount of users who want to make playlists like "My favorites - 2018", or "EDM hits 2019", why not just give people the ability verify dates or to pull their favorites out of an existing archive playlist by sorting by date?  And for my obsessive reason, I could have a list of an artist's discography in chronological order in two clicks: "list view", "sort by release date".   Personally, I don't care at all about the date I added a song to a playlist.  Make that column release date instead.
