[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)

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'm still frustrated that I have to use Amazon to find new relases in general... not just by acts i follow and like... I want a facility that alows we see ALL new music that has been relased on spotify... spotify also needs to have a way to sort new relses of singles and albums... at the moment, i go through the relase radar and click on the song and view album and is takes me to a new page where i can see if it is on a new album or if its just a single.... Really annoying!

Thanks islandbeats for the application Crabhands. I use everyday http://www.spotifyradar.com but I think that it's nice to have multiple choices :)

This is off topic man, please use your own idea thread to discuss your issue. This here is about followed artists only!

I see that on the "Home" page there is a new(? never noticed before) section called "New releases for you". Seems like a start- it will take some time to see if it does what it is supposted to do. Looks like a trunkated version of the "Discover" tab from "Browse".

 

Some of the "artists you love" are still questionable. Just because I listen to that artist a few times does not = love. Artists I follow would be a better metric. Like, listening to Lana Del Rey a few times (to see what all the fuss is about) doesn't really warrent putting the Charlie's Angels single on this list.

 

Baby steps I suppose.
