My Question or Issue
I recently was given the new updated UI without asking for it. The update has totally ruined my experience on Spotify. It is a classic example of graphic designers and visual artists changing things with NO REGARD for how their tweaks will effect the actual USER experience.
My main concern is that I appear to have lost almost my entire list of saved artists. I used to save songs and because that would automatically add artists to my library, I would then browse my library EXCLUSIVELY by artist.
When I go to "artists" in the new UI, I have about 5 artists saved under the letter "A". I used to have upwards of 30. The same goes for every letter of the alphabet. The artists that were migrated into my "new" library are only the artists I follow. The complete list (of hundreds of artists) is shown below the "followed" artists, and IT IS NOT IN ALPHA ORDER . WHAT COMPLETE FOOL DECIDED THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?
MOST of the artists that I have songs saved for are now listed SEPARATELY from the ones that I "follow"
If there is not a quick fix to recover my library, you can consider my subscription over and I will be switching to Apple Music, because I still have an iMac and an iPod.
Please tell me I can recover my library in alphabetical order. Just because I haven't heard a song in a month does not mean I want it to be **bleep** near impossible to find. I can't help but think that you are trying to dumb this app down so much that it appeals only to top-40 listeners and children.
Please make these UI changes optional, because you have literally ruined my favorite way to use Spotify. I do not want to spend my life listening to playlists curated by an algorithm, I want to discover music on my own terms like an adult with a brain.
