[Desktop][Other] Full-size album artwork

Musicians put in a lot of effort to their album artwork, so it's a shame that on our desktop devices with nice screens we can't see then in higher resolution than a handful of hundred pixels square. See attachement for a proposed screen – click on a piece of album art while in album view (currently this does nothing) and see it expanded to the size of the spotify window.

I don't think I've ever actively wanted this while using spotify, but as soon as I read this suggestion I loved it! A "stretch goal" would be to include additional artwork, liner notes, etc. that some albums provide.

Really hope this goes through, i've been sitting here pressing crtl + a bunch of times. But that kinda messes up the whole UI haha.
