"View Artist" and "View Album" not available for songs in some contexts.

Expected Behavior: When clicking on the "..." option from either the "Now Playing" screen or a list of songs, a series of options is shown (Like, Add to Playlist, Add to Queue, etc). Two of these options should always be "View Artist" and "View Album".

 

Experienced Behavior: In some contexts, these options are not displayed in the list. (see screenshot)

 

Examples of Contexts that display the options

- When using the search function to search for a specific song (in list, and from Now Playing after selected)

- When selecting a song from my library in the songs (in list, and from Now Playing after selected)

 

Examples of Contexts that does not display the options

- When using the search function to search for an album (songs in the album list DO NOT. After selecting the song, the option DOES appear in Now Playing)

- When selecting an album from the Home page (songs in the album list DO NOT. After selecting the song, the option DOES appear in Now Playing)

 

This is a frustrating user experience. Extra steps are now required for a process that was simple and reliable in the past.
