[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 

(PLEASE IMPLEMENT IT LIKE THIS)

 

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.

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)

Hey folks, this idea received quite a few votes in the last year so we wanted to update you all again. The status on this is still 'Not Right Now' as 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. 

At the moment we don't have plans to build a New Releases section just for your artists on our Home page. Should anything change we will update this idea again. Thanks!

There is an album of Jorge Ben Jor called "Admiral Jorge V" which has really good songs but Spotify does not have this album.

I totally agree with you, Radar Release absolutely does not answer our request. React Spotify, please.

@MeredithThanks for telling us that what your team feels is more important than what your paying users need. Perhaps they feel differently soon?

PS paying users are actually part of "the team" DS

No it is not.

You don't have to "build" the release section, it existed before you removed it.

Radar stuff is not good. Its a messy playlist with totally unrelated stuff released who knows when. Plus if you miss something on week A you miss it forever.

Please give the notification bell back.

I cancelled my Spotify and used the money for Netflix. At least they show you when there are new releases of the stuff you're in to. No regrets. Barely use Spotify now.

 

I'd be back like a shot if they reimplemented a proper feed to show me when my followed artists put new music on to Spotify. Until then, I'll stick to other music providers that let me keep up to date with my favorite artists.
