How does the "New releases" list work?

Today I find for example 2 Rammstein albums of 2004 and 2001...

Is it correct?

 

It would be also useful to have the possibility to filter for example on the nationality of albums (Italy, USA, UK).

 

Thank you!

 

Best regards,

Camillo

Well, the New Releases normally shows some of the most prominent releases of the week, and I believe Spotify editors choose which ones to highlight. Rammstein was a unique situation because Spotify just recently got the rights to include that band's music in the catalog, so I'm sure they were just trying to make sure people were aware it was available.

I believe there should be 2 sections, one for real new releases on market ordered by date of publishing and one for latest added to Spotify, so we do not get any confusion.
Thanks
