You won’t be able to shuffle songs from Adele’s new album on Spotify – here’s why

Entertainment

Spotify has stopped automatically shuffling albums after Adele said it was the “only request” she had in the “ever-changing” music industry.

The streaming service announced its acquiescence by tweeting: “Anything for you.”

Adele posted that artists do not “create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason”.

The star added: “Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you Spotify for listening.”

However, individual album tracks still show the shuffle symbol, making it possible to start listening to a collection on any given song.

When Adele’s previous album, 25, was released in 2015 it was not initially available on streaming services.

It was, though, uploaded to sites such as Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal the following year.
