Thanks for reaching out to us and welcome to the Community!
We can confirm this is an expected behavior on your mobile device. On your free account, you can listen to albums with the shuffle button, and this’ll play the songs on it randomly. If you want to, you can add individual tracks from an album to a playlist, then you can play it in the order you set 🙂
Just to clarify, this doesn’t happen on your iPad because this is a restriction that only applies to mobile devices. You can read more about the free experience on mobile here.
Hope this clears things up. If you have any questions or need anything else, the Community is here for you.
