    Federico Viticci, writing for MacStories:

    While the old artist page design of Apple Music mixed albums, singles, EPs, live albums, and more under the same ‘Albums’ section, the new Apple Music features separate sections for different types of music releases. The new sections include singles and EPs, live albums, essential albums recommended by Apple Music editors, compilations, and appearances by an artist on other albums. As pictured above, Apple Music now also highlights an artist’s latest or upcoming release at the top of the page.

    Much better.

    Wish "Singles & EPs" weren't clumped together but this is a start.

    Spotify does this as well; I wish they were split too.

    I'll change this eventually Prestigious

    Spotify really needs a handle on album years. I want to know when it was originally released!

    Question for spotify people. When you save music to your device and then go to play it, is there anyway to have it not just be a gigantic list of every individual song? I’m talking specific artist discography essentially.

    I generally just go to the album view and play it from there. Or I make playlists and play those.

    FINALLY. Now they need to do something about duplicated albums.

    So does this solve the issue of when a pre-release single is released, it will get absorbed into the album vs having a separate track? Like, the three 1975 songs from the new album are listed as singles (like Give Yourself a Try - Single). All my plays for that song are registered to that version. It has probably over 100 plays, I don’t want another version that starts at 0 plays. But now that the whole album is available, Apple Music wants me to re-add those songs separately. I just want to be able to change the name of the album and have it stay that way.

    The lack is this feature is one of my biggest complaints for Google Play Music (and Youtube Music.) Meanwhile, Deezer (of all things) has been doing this perfectly for years, dividing releases into Albums/EPs/Singles.

    I have a slightly different issue. If I add a pre-release to my library, MANY times once the full album is released, my copy still shows most of the tracks greyed out. I have to remove the album and then re-add it.
