My Question or Issue
Spotify allows artists to control crossfading on their albums, but this control inadvertently extends to user-created playlists as well.
If songs in a user-created playlist are ordered the same way as they are in the original album, they will inherit the original album's crossfade settings and override client Crossfade settings.
This only applies to the ordered songs, all other songs will crossfade just fine.
To reproduce, just enable crossfade, create a playlist, and add songs into the playlist from an album that has crossfade disabled in the same order as in the album. None of the songs will crossfade into each other.
I'm using this album as an example: https://open.spotify.com/album/0gJZnztLrEzc7UWDm55Xdj?si=2ce35687462a4bac
In this playlist (https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1NpUAffNVnLOR4owoBBxHk?si=3ef6028ee77d4661) the songs are ordered the same as they are in the album; none of them will crossfade despite my local Crossfade setting. If the song-order is changed, the changed songs will crossfade into each other.'
In this playlist, (https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7ChdRYQWgxWmpfFtd0CjP3?si=17fddbc39d5d4f8a) an outside song will crossfade into the ordered songs, but they will not crossfade into each other.
