Do your files have correct Album Artist tags? Otherwise if the Artist name for each track is different, they won't be sorted as the same album. This was done to avoid (for example) several albums entitled "Greatest Hits" but by different artists from being grouped together. You could also try adjusting Settings > Library > Lists > Join Albums .

So Isnt it possible to group all songs of one album of different artist under one album as old Poweramp does? See screenshot they all belongs to one album but sorted differently as artist all I want is all these in one album. 

 

See second screenshot I have sorted by album name still showing albums by artist..

Yes, you could use folder sorting to do this.

The functionality you mention from the old PA was much criticised for the way it used to work (otherwise,  albums with the same title such as "Greatest Hits" but by different artists would get grouped together under one huge "Greatest Hits" album). Use the Album Artist tag to control how various-artist albums are grouped.

Just arrived here because of that exact problem, Now! Music album shows as 40 seperate 1 track albums which wasn't happening in v2. 

If you insist this is the best way, how about a quicker (group) method to edit/change all the album artists in an album to "Various Artists" as it's a right pain having to edit them 1 by 1.

Or TagScanner, both have powerful batch editing features.

The music is already on an android phone (in internal memory), I don’t have access to a personal computer to run programs on.

This problem has only appeared with the latest version of Poweramp, it didn’t happen in the old Poweramp.

v2 of Poweramp did not support the 'Album Artist' tag at all, which v3 now handles to allow better grouping of Various Artists style albums (this was after overwhelming user request). However this unfortunately may mean that poorly tagged files might not get sorted correctly now.

There are batch tag editing apps available for Android, but as it's so much easier to do on a proper computer I'm afraid I haven't tried any of them.

Came across this thread while searching for a solution. My library is properly tagged for various artist as that is the proper way to do it and has been for years on other players, but I still wasn't getting albums grouped.

Found the solution myself, enable "Album Artists" in "Library List Options" which is found in settings > Library > Lists

If you have no use for the straight artist list you can uncheck it there.
