Songwriter's Corner|

By Jeevan Ravindran, CNN | When it comes to her art, Adele has a certain way she likes things to be done. The singer believes the tracks on an album should be listened to in their order of arrangement — and now she’s got streaming giant Spotify onside.

Following the release of her fourth album “30,” the shuffle button is no longer the default option for album listening on Spotify — but rather listeners will hear the tracks in their listed order.
“This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry!” Adele wrote on Twitter Sunday. “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.”

It seems Spotify was more than happy to oblige, writing “anything for you” in reply to the singer’s tweet.
