[Your Music] Creating "Collections" of Albums

I have an idea that could make using Spotify better for people who put a lot of effort into managing their music libraries (and for everyone else as well).

The idea is simple: Being able to create collections or lists of whole albums. Of course you could just add albums to regular playlists but then it just adds the songs separately, which is messy, so you can't easily see which or how many albums are there in the list or checking if there are missing songs.

 

You can add and remove whole albums to collections, much like songs to playlistsYou can add and remove whole albums to collections, much like songs to playlists

 

By having album collections we could easily see which albums are added to them and it would make it quicker to select certain albums for downloading by toggling the download button of a collection containing them. We could also re-order the list of albums quicker than re-ordering a simple playlist of consecutive albums broken down to songs.

 

This would also make it possible to listen to certain albums in a specific or even random order without having to add every album to the queue one by one.

 

You can download/un-download every album in the collection with one tap, you can also either play the albums in order or shuffle them, or even shuffle all songs within the albumsYou can download/un-download every album in the collection with one tap, you can also either play the albums in order or shuffle them, or even shuffle all songs within the albumsAdding or removing albums from collectionsAdding or removing albums from collections

I need this! Spotify needs better organizational tools. This being one of them.

 

An easier alternative would be to be able to list playlists as albums instead of songs. More viewing options and organization options, please!

 

I always listen to albums in their entirety, and it seems like Spotify is only directly catering to people using playlists of individual songs from different albums.

It's been about 2 years since this idea got the "Not Right Now" status (today September 2020). I sincerely hope that the moment right for this feature will come soon...

This needs to be implemented! It's the last step towards perfection for us music nerds.

Newbie

Still don't understand why Spotify refuse to do it! Perhaps none of the decision makers have ever owned an album collection.

Any update on this idea? It would improve my experience 100% or tempt me onto another app if I find it. 

I'm primarily an album listener rather than individual tracks. There would be loads of different uses for this and its so much better than playlists. A few off the top of my head:

- new albums/want to listen to collection: you read/see/someone tells you about a good album. You save it to this list and can work your way through. (This is what I really, really need!) 

- seasonal collections: it's autumn, what are good autumn-y albums? There's a collection of them here!

- best of lists: there are loads of greatest 'x' type album list out there. They could be pulled together on your app.

Thanks

I've been thinking about looking for a different music streaming service which offers what it's subscribers want too. It should be a no-brained! 

Newbie

Imagine you have a CD or LP collection. You organize it however you want it. As simple as that. This cannot be so complicated, Spotify team! 

Newbie

NOT NOW? WHEN?

Newbie

Can't believe it's not already a thing. Gonna get a different service if I find one with it.

Spotify, please add this! This request has been around for years, and I can't believe it still hasn't been implemented. This would bring the user experience to an unparalleled level of excellence
