[Your Music] Sort Music in "Your Music" by Year

Now that the original release year should be available please add an option to the new album view to use it for sorting.

 

 

there could be options for at least:

"SORTED BY ARTIST / YEAR"

"SORTED BY ARTIST / TITLE"

"SORTED BY YEAR"

 

There could be some kind of subtle separator where the artist changes when listing the album covers. Also the release year should be shown in the album images.

If it its that simple (just 107 lines of code), why can't Spotify do it themselves?

 

Does anyone know if other steaming services (like Tidal) has the option we need?

 

My option for now is, put all the albums in different playlist, one for year, one for genre, etc. It's really time consuming. But yeah it works...

This is such an essential and crucial feature. I can't believe it hasn't been incorporated yet.

Is it possible that "Sort your Music" is currently not working? When I log in, I only see an empty overview page.

Why would you not do it?

Wow thnx theteacat , it's not perfect, but it works and looks great! Many thanks. Maybe you should work for Spotify 😉.

Thanks breitman! Feel free to make an issue on the Github repository if you spot a bug or have a feature request. 🙂

Amazing! Thanks @theteacat.

 

This has bugged me for years that I couldn't simply just view my albums by date. It was my only real issue with Spotify.

 

Love the fact that you've included toggles for Albums/Singles/Compliations too. Brilliant.

I am honestly so grateful!
