Spotify removed the “shuffle” option for albums.
Adele thanked the streaming platform. She tweeted: “This was the only request I had in our ever-changing industry. Our art tells a story, and our stories should be listened to as we intended.”
The shuffle button is not completely deleted. With a couple extra clicks on the Now Playing View page, you can toggle to listen to album tracks in random order.
Adele racked up nearly 61 million album streams on Spotify in the first 24-hours. “I Drink Wine” seemed to be a favorite among her followers. They’ve demanded that she release the 15-minute version of the “I Drink Wine.” Adele’s label convinced her that radio would never play a 15-minute song. Yet, her listeners like Taylor Swift’s followers are eager to hear these longer tracks.
