I've updated to iOS 8.4, and on the revamped Music app, I can't jump to artist. In previous versions, I could be playing a shuffle playlist and whenever I'm on some song and I wanted to keep playing from that album, I could simply tap the top right button and it would jump me to the currently playing song's album. Now, when I'm playing a song in a shuffle playlist, I see that button has been placed next to seek controls (previous, play/pause, next buttons), but when I tap that, it doesn't take me to the album anymore, it takes me to playlist.

How can I jump to album when playing a song from shuffle? It was a feature that I was using passively, but now I can't find it and I'm having quite hard time jumping to song's album, which I did a lot.

  1. The currently playing song shows up in a horizontal now playing bar.

  2. Click the three dots on the right hand side of the bar.

  3. Click on the album name at the top of the pop up menu.

  • Oh, didn't notice that album art was tappable. Yes, it is exactly what I was looking for, thanks. Commented Jul 2, 2015 at 17:43
  • Yeah this was a neat trick I learned after being frustrated by the same issue. Tapping on the artist name in that menu will take you to the artist page. However, there seems to be a bug where sometimes it'll redirect you to an "Unknown Artist" page.

There is a bug "Unknown Album" if you do that on an Apple Music track.

  • ran into this topic looking to see if anyone else had this issue. Thanks.
