Often when I want to play all my songs by an artist, I want to hear them in the order they were released. In other words, I want to hear the 1983 album: track 1, track 2, track 3... followed by the 1985 album: track 1, track 2, track 3... etc. Unfortunately, when I sort All Artist Songs by year, the tracks on each album are sorted alphabetically within each year (album). Listening to an album in alphabetical order is nowhere near as useful as the intended track order, especially for concept albums or albums where songs fade into each other. I think I remember there being a setting that advanced to the next category at the end of the current one, so I could enable that and just press the play button on the artist home page instead of the All Artist Songs page. But my typical behavior with playlists is to restart the playlist when I get to the end, so I don't want that setting enabled globally. It would just be a heck of a lot easier if there were a "sort by album year" option like what I'm describing.
Hello there, first of all - thanks for this great music player! My Specs: v3-build-882-arm64-play [882004-437be2ab] Sony Xperia XZ1c Android 9 no custom rom Problem Description: All of my Songs have a Year in the Tags, but some (like 50 out of ~4k) haven't got an Album-Tag (because there is none, etc). When sorting by year (Library->Years) all songs with no Album-Tag are automaticaly sorted into the "latest" Year (2020) under "Unknown Album" although they have an other Year-Tag set if additional Info is needed feel free to contact me via mail, or here in the thread. Thank you.
Hey there, Everything's been pretty good so far with v3 for me. The only thing I'm having issues with is the "By year" list option inside of a folder. On v2, I always had it set that way, and it would have the songs for the album in the order they originally appeared on the album itself. Now with v3, it lists all the songs in alphabetical order per year. It gets even more confusing when a band has had multiple releases in a year. I've been using the "By album" list option in the meantime, but I prefer to have the albums in chronological order of release, which it does not. At least it can give me the tracks in the order that they appear on the album. I couldn't seem to find any fix in the settings, so if anyone could help out, it would be most appreciated.
