My Question or Issue

I'm looking for the list of all songs of an artist, on iOS. I know when you search an artist, you can scroll down to "See all artists," "See all songs," "See all playlists," etc. Clicking on “See all songs” kind of works, but it’s still inefficient.

 

What I'm looking for is to view all songs from the artist's page. I know you can click on “See Discography” and it’ll bring you to all their albums. Problem with that is if you don’t know what album the song you want is on, you have to go through each one until you find it (inefficient). Is there a way that you can be on the artist’s page and view a literal list of all their songs? If not, there should be. You should be able to order the list by date, album, popularity, alphabetical order, whatever.


The closest thing I can find to this is on the desktop app where you can show the albums and all their songs in a list.


I’ve only had Spotify for a month or so and haven’t used it much on my phone, but the more I use it, the more I hate how inefficient and illogical it is.

Hey @inboardshooter,

 

Thanks for reaching out. You have 2 ways you can see all songs of a specified artist.

 

The first way is to use the This Is playlist of that artist. For example for Queen, it's: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF1DWSNC7AjZWNry?si=1YdfiPbvTnOUFGkglxN5DA.

 

Every artist on Spotify has this playlist featuring their biggest hits and songs which will be sufficient for you as a discography page.

 

The second way is to search for the artist's own playlist. Some artists create their own playlists and place all of their songs which can be found under their profiles > artist playlists. Billie Eilish has one for example.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

 

Cheers,

Arda.

Hello there,

Thanks for the reply. However, this response does not address the question of the previous user. What happened to the "See all" link that was there a couple of years ago (at list on the desktop version of Spotify).

Thanks

There is no way to do that on the app, it’s dumb.

i thought you might be able to on premium but nope! The company with the massive database full of music can’t do it so each artist or user has to do it themselves

I believe you used to be able to do this at least on the desktop app but I think this should be a standard feature on all platforms.

It's an issue for me mostly because I mostly listen to EDM. If the song is not brand new and is a collab or on someone else's album, it can be a major pain to find it without a list of all tracks by that artist, nearly impossible in some cases on the mobile app.

This does not answer the question. What happened to the "Songs" tab for a given artist?

So it's been over a year now and the feature to see all of an artists songs on a single page still does not exist, or am I missing something? This seems like a basic no-brainer feature to have.

Absolutely baffling that they do not have such a basic and easy to implement feature as list all and filter. I am using Android and it also doesn't have it.

 

I am considering changing music providers over it and cancelling premium.
