How do I turn off Spotify’s album shuffle function? Be Adele.
Spotify has dropped the default shuffle toggle on albums for Spotify Premium users. On Adele’s 30 album page, a large ‘Play’ button appears instead of the usual shuffle. Adele confirmed that this feature is at her request on social media.
“This was the only request I had in our ever-changing industry!” the singer writes. “We don’t create albums with such care and thought on our song list for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories must be heard as we intend. Thanks Spotify for listening. The official Spotify account responded to Adele’s tweet, “Anything for you.”
Spotify Premium users can now turn off album shuffle on all their favorite albums, thanks to Adele.
“As Adele mentioned, we are pleased to share that we have started rolling out a new Premium feature that users and artists have long requested to play the default button on all albums,” confirms a Spotify spokesperson.
“For those users who still want to shuffle an album, they can go to the Now Playing view and select 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.
Spotify is working hard to improve the app with many long-requested features. Last week, Spotify dropped its Genius-associated ‘Behind the Lyrics’ feature in favor of real, live lyrics that scroll with the song, like any other music streaming service that offers lyrics.
Adele has been working on her fourth studio album, 30, since at least 2018. The album chronicles the breakup of her marriage to Simon Konecki.
The singer previewed the album before its release on a CBS special, where a man surprised his girlfriend with a proposal. An interesting choice that, proposing eternal marriage at an album listening party for the biggest divorce album of the year.
However, the man who proposed to her had no idea that he would do so at Adele’s private concert. “It was a post that I saw online, I was looking for someone who was willing to propose to his girlfriend in an incredible and epic way in one of the most beautiful places in Los Angeles,” Quentin Brunson told Fox. “But they didn’t tell me. It was an Adele special, so I went into this blindly.
