[Mobile] See all Songs on Artist Page

Dear spotify,

 

First of all, thanks for your awesome service! I really enjoy my premium account on my desktop and iPhone version and use it at home and wherever I go. However there's something that bothers me often while searching for a song, especially on the iPhone version.

  

I often search for a song of a specific artist. So I use the search function and reach the artist's page. Once there, the app only shows the 5 most popular songs of the artist. But often the song I'm looking for is not listed there (maybe nr 6 on the list or lower). Now I have the option of searching through the albums, which can be quite time consuming, or try to use the search function again and hope to find it with a more specific combination of words (provided that I know anything more than the artist's name).

 

Now every time I get to this I'm thinking why can't I tap a button ('see all songs') which allows me to see all the artist's songs in a list? That is something I'm looking for intuitively. On the desktop version, the list of 5 can be extended to 10 most popular, but also here I'm thinking: why only 10?! Actually, the list I'm looking for can be brought up by the app already by playing the first song (while not in shuffle mode) and tapping the playlist icon. This brings up the kind of list I would like to see: all the artists songs I can just browse through. Only now I'm playing the first song, which I didn't want to hear at all.

 

Preferably, I would want to be albe to sort the list in order of popularity or alphabet.

 

 

Cheers!

Well thanks for not really listening. Why am I not surprised?

This is so stupid. Especially the younger folks (your core target group) are not used to buying albums and therefore don't connect and remember songs by album, but rather only by the artist. If I am looking for a song that I can't quite remember the name of, I won't have any idea which album it was on. But I will know the artist. So why not implement a button that shows all songs instead of letting me click every single album the artist ever made separately to look for that one song? This is so stupid and quite embarrassing for a company that used to be innovative and striving.. Whats the problem with this extra function anyways?! It's not like there are any disadvantages.

It only took 5 years for Spotify to reply.

You know who does show all songs? Apple Music. I’m out.

Thanks for posting it. I am having really bad times without this feature since my previous music platform had it.

It is VERY INCONVENIENT to search through the songs on Artist's page when you have only 5 most popular in the list (since I know the artist, but don't remember the song names).

I really hope that Spotify can implement this, because this is the only thing that frustrate me that much.

Spotify, please, check out the UX for Artist page on other platforms.

Meanwhile, it's almost 5 years since the issue created, and no changes.

This feature is a very simple and basic must-have.
Any Spotify analog has it. Even more, you have it on the PC version (start playing the album from artist page and it will continue playing all artist's songs), but not on Mobile (shuffle is not an option, it will not list all tracks, may include other artists, and tracks are constantly re-included into the "next playlist").
All I want to do is just listen to all songs of a specific artist, is it some kind of rocket science?
This is very frustrating and painful.

Spotify needs to improve this. Having to dig through all an artists albums to find popular songs because I can only see the top 5 or 10 is a huge dissatisfier.This has been an issue for years and I found posts going back to 2015 where someone proposed this idea, but Spotify decided it wasn't important.
