Adele convinces Spotify to make big changes
Adele has convinced executives at Spotify to make changes to their service upon the release of her new album.
The British singer managed to persuade Spotify to remove the default shuffle option for new release albums.
As a result, listeners can hear the track listing as it was intended to be heard by the artist.
Adele shared the news with her Twitter followers, saying “Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended.”
While the shuffle option still comes up as the default on playlists, on individual albums, the tracks will be played in order.
This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry! 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. Thank you Spotify for listening 🍷♥️ https://t.co/XWlykhqxAy

When Adele tweeted the news, Spotify replied to the songstress saying “Anything for you”.
Adele’s fourth studio album 30 was released the day after the Spotify changes were made, which was highly anticipated after her six year hiatus.
She first teased the album on Instagram early in October, as the announcement boasts over 6 million likes.
