[Discover] New Release Section for Followed Artists

Please add a section to the desktop and mobile apps where we can see all of the new releases from the artists we follow. 


For a third party solution check out 

http://app.swarm.fm and https://spotifyreleaselist.netlify.com



This new section would update automatically when a new album from an artist you follow is available on Spotify. Please make the feed have a high display limit so we can go back months and months and for sure won't miss any releases.


Screenshot from swarm.fm:



The Release Radar playlist is not acceptable!


The problem with the Release Radar playlist is that it mixes in suggestions. I want to see followed artists ONLY. And if you check the playlist a week too late, all the songs are GONE.


We need a feed that we can scroll back months and months and months so we can see all the new releases. We shouldn't have to rush through it and it be gone the next week.



New release emails and in app notifications are no longer offered


Right now you can follow artists and get emails when a new album comes out, but these emails can be very unreliable and easily missed if you get lots of them spamming your email.


I would compare the current situation as Twitter allowing you to follow people on Twitter, but they do not have a feed to see all of the tweets. Instead you have to individually go to each person's profile to see their tweets with the option of getting the tweets sent to your email. See how silly it sounds?


It would work in addition to new release emails. (you can always turn off new release emails in your account settings and just use this new section)

Hi everyone, we've recently reviewed this idea and will keep its status as is for now.


For clarity's sake, here's the relevant section from our previous status update:

"..our teams feel this is currently fulfilled by our Release Radar playlistWith Release Radar, we’re giving you a weekly selection of the newest releases that matter most to you in one convenient playlist. You’ll get all of your new favorite music, without any of the effort that goes into searching for the latest gems."


I use app.swarm.fm for this feature temporary. It'd be great if you add it to native app.


It'd be also great if you add "suggested" new releases that shows new releases from "my artists + related artists with them"


I realized that there are new releases from my followed artists and related artist with them today.


There was no any Turkish singer relases on this section but there are 2 one at the moment.


I hope this feature has been implemented.

 IT IS SUCH A GOOD IDEA! A way to see ally my loved artists releases in one spot, dayumn that would be a good feature. Also if there is a place to learn about the artists I listen to, like a quickish summary of bands they like and when new releases are planned.

I still miss this feature on my ios app version! Deezer has it already!!!!!!!!!

I'm gonna add +1 and hope everybody else does too until this is added.

For god sake! How long is it going to take for you to implement this! It's a no brainer!


It would be so useful.

Currently the 'New releases' section is useless as it 99% shows artists/genres I don't car about.


Being able to filter by genre (Apple music does it) would also be really useful.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one with this problem.

The thing is... if I don't go to the new releases page for a while I will still miss new releases from the artists I track or will they be more like notifications that stay there until I checked them out?


Maybe a better notification handling would solve the problem?
I'm thinking of a combination between a dedicated notification section and a filter tool/option so users who are following many artists, playlists & friends have a chance to handle the notifications not missing the new releases.

Please add this feature!! Email and notifications in app dont work well

@blake this idea has been a "good idea" for quite some time and @MattSuda even made a mockup.


Do you have an update for us?
