Spotify Shuffle

Post by marymary »

Album shuffle will no longer be permitted.

Adele has persuaded Spotify to take the shuffle button off all album pages so tracks play in the artist's own order.
The singer tweeted: "We don't create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason.
"Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you Spotify for listening."
The streaming service replied "anything for you" and took away the option for listeners to mix up the order music is played from album pages.

Good! Try listening to "War of the Worlds", "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" or any number of Operettas, classical music etc. etc. and so forth with shuffle on and it stuffs them up completely.

Does this mean that if the only track you want to listen to is the last one on the album you have to listen to the whole album?

No, you can still go right to your favourite but don’t need to listen to a randomised selection.

Shuffle is still an option but it was the default.
Yes this is the real "Little John" (or it could be "colin whose birthday is the day after mine)
