Adele convinces Spotify to remove shuffle from all albums

From CNET: Spotify has removed the shuffle button as a default option from its app's album pages, forcing songs to be played in the order the artist intended, after Adele asked that the songs on her new album be played in the order she intended.

"This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry!" the Grammy-winning singer tweeted on Saturday. "We don't create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended."

Spotify apparently got the message, responding to Adele's tweet with "Anything for you."

While the shuffle button no longer appeared on the album page, the option remains visible when a user clicks to view an album track. Spotify didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Adele's first album in six years, 30, was released on Spotify on Friday.
