Whatever Adele asks, Adele receives.

Spotify has removed the shuffle button as a default option, forcing songs to be played in the order the artist intended, after Adele made the request.

“This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry!” Adele tweeted. “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.”

Now artists have to listen to the tracks in order.

The new track comes off his upcoming, debut EP produced with iconic bassist of John Taylor of Duran Duran.

It’s also his 4th single that reached #1 on the Hype Machine Chart. The previous tracks like Don’t Feel Like Dancing landed on Spotifys Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds Pop. Ones To Watch, Billboard, and Sirius XM are also on board the Nate train. Stream it on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
