Adele Gets Spotify To Hide the Shuffle Button on Album Pages
“Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended.”
“We are excited to share that we have begun rolling out a new Premium feature that has been long requested by both users and artists to make Play the default button on all albums,” a Spotify representative shared. For those who still wish to shuffle an album, you can do so by going to the Now Playing View and selecting the Shuffle option. “As always, we will continue to iterate our products and features to create the best experiences for both artists and their fans,” the representative added.
After the streaming service hid the Shuffle button, Adele explained that the intent behind her request was due to the fact that the work of musicians “tell a story” and that their “stories should be listened to as [they] intended.” “Thank you, Spotify for listening,” she concluded her tweet.
