The artists are listed by date joined but what about albums? As I cannot “follow” a particular artist would I potentially miss new albums/songs released? Would it be possible to be able to follow an artist to get notifications of new music from them?
This is definitely on our near-term roadmap.
Something we’re trying to figure out is should you automatically follow an artist when you add an album/track of theirs into your library?
I think Spotify has the notion of following artists, but on Apple Music it’s more hidden, in that you “Follow” an artist as soon as you add them into your library. Bandcamp is kind of a mixture, where there is an explicit follow button, but you automatically follow the artist when you buy their music.
Sounds like you are over thinking it. An album or song in my library doesnt mean I want to follow someone. Following is really to be kept updated on new music dropping / having that artist easily accessible. So I would say it is an opt in feature.
