I listen to a lot of electronic/dance music, and there's a lot of cases where multiple musicians may collaborate on a song. Likewise I have purchased a number of compilation albums where a specific musician may only contribute one or two songs out of a dozen or more.

 

I'd like to be able to view all the songs I have in my library that were made by/involved a specific artist. However, if I go to an artist page, I only get a list of albums that they were involved in, even though 90% of the songs in some of the albums have nothing to do with them. 

 

Would it be possible to add a view somewhere (such as on the artist info page) that will allow showing all the songs in a library made by that specific artist?

Hi, we thought it cluttered the design a bit so that's why we took it out. It's always possible to rethink this in the future. thanks.

Thanks for your reply! I can see how that could get cluttered, especially if you have dozens of songs from a single artist. But such a feature (even if it was a separate page or search result) would be useful when a number of artists in your library have songs scattered between many different albums / album artists.

Yea and I can understand that as well. It's just a question of how we'd present it.

I would suggest a separate tab at the top (like the main music page) that would then list the songs (filtering for those songs would need to be included, too).  Another option would to add artists option to the filter criteria on the main songs page.

Yikes.  Takes a special thought process to remove functionality in the name of not being cluttered.  If you were concerned and clever, you could've just made it an option somewhere the in the settings.  Less control is never good for users.
