Adele has persuaded Spotify to take the shuffle button off all album pages so tracks play in the artist’s own order.

The singer 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. Thank you Spotify for listening.”

The streaming service replied “anything for you” and took away the option for listeners to mix up the order music is played from album pages.

However, the shuffle symbol – two intersecting arrows – still appears on individual album tracks.

This means it is still possible to start listening to albums on any track and opt for songs to be played in a random order.

The shuffle button also still appears on playlists. The BBC has asked Spotify for a comment.

Adele’s 30 – her first album in six years – was available on Spotify from its release on Friday.

This marked a change from her last album – 25 – which could only be bought physically or downloaded when it was released in November 2015.

It became the fastest-selling album in British history, shifting more than 800,000 copies in its first week.
