This request was apparently brought up by singer, Adele as she thanked Spotify on Twitter for responding to her request. The singer mentions that much care and thought is put into the track listing and therefore “should be listened as we intended”.

Don’t worry, Spotify didn’t completely remove the ‘shuffle’ feature, there’s just an extra step now. You can still head to the Now Playing screen and toggle the option to shuffle there. It’s good to note that this only applies to Spotify Premium users and ad-supported users still get the shuffle-play by default.
