How the heck can I delete albums and artists out of Your Music?!?!?!?

I had asked elsewhere about how to delete stuff out of "Your Music" and was told that from the 3 dots in the upper right of the app screen I would get a "Remove" option.


BUT.


1) That option is simply not there all the time. I cannot figure out any rhyme or reason as to why or why not-it seems maybe I can't remove artists, only albums? (But then, I don't see any way to view just albums by an artist...). Maybe it's only items I have played that I can remove? 

That rule didn't really seem to work either. Some albums/artists I can "remove" but not others, they simply don't show the option, not even greyed out. What the heck is going on?!?!? (These items are NOT in playlists, I hardly use playlists).


2) Even when I can "Remove" that stuff still appears in the "Your Music" list. So what the heck am I removing? Not the music, as I don't download for offline listening any more. How can I get this stuff totally out of the list? (Yeah, I supposed I could remove and reinstall the entire app, but that seems ridiculous to be doing that periodically)

I just want to parse the list down to stuff I want to listen to in the future-not junk I already heard, not my kids stuff she sticks in there sometimes. It is really bugging me that I can't clear out this old stuff!

Help! Or maybe I should say HELLp!!!

Hi,

 

I will do my best to help you!

 

To remove a album follow these steps:

  1. Open Spotify and go to the "Album view"
  2. Open the album that you want to remove.
  3. Scroll all the way up (so that you see the cover).
  4. Press the "saved"-button so it says "save" instead. 
  5. Finished.

Hope this helped. :)

That works or at least gets me to where I can delete. From the album view I can get the REMOVE option, so far every time, and the stuff is not in the list any more.

This question might also relate to the Recently Played list. At the top of the list hit Edit and delete the stuff you don't want anymore.

This option doesnt seem to work. When i do select the artist and scroll to the top often there is not a "save" or "unfollow" option and i have to uncheck each song individually beside the song name. There could be 50+ songs for one artist, this takes so long, is there not a better way?

I've never gotten this to work by artist. Yeah, you'd *think* you could select an artist and get a "REMOVE" button but no. I've only been able to delete in the Albums view, one album at a time. Tedious. I wonder/wish I could manage that list from a desktop.

On a Windows desktop this is about a million times easier. You are right: this is plain torture on my iPad
