How to View an Album for a Song on a Spotify Playlist

Adding songs to your own custom playlists, or following an existing playlist in Spotify is a great way to listen to songs that you’ve found which you enjoy. In fact, the playlist feature is so useful that you may eventually find yourself needing to delete some of those playlists. Occasionally you may encounter a song that you really like, and you might want to hear other songs by that same artist.

One way that you can do this is by selecting an option for that song where you can view the album that the song is on. Our tutorial below will show you how to view a song’s album in the Spotify app on your iPhone so that you can listen to that album, or add more songs from the album to one of your playlists.
