• I open an album in Music (v1.3.4.56) on macOS.
    • Note: I have an active Apple Music subscription and am listening via Apple Music.
  • I double-click the first song and start listening.
  • When the album is done, it starts up what I assume is a "playlist based on the album you just finished".

Instead, when it finishes playing what I asked for, I want the music to stop. I'll pick a new album if and when I want to listen to something else.

Can I stop this behavior? If so, how? I didn't see a setting for it.

I realize I could probably select "repeat all" and hear the album over and over. No, I'd rather the needle come up off of the album and not play again.

Aka, "I'm sure many love it, but please don't play Joe Bonamassa's Blues of Desperation without asking after I've listened to Larkin Poe's Reskinned. I'd rather hear silence. Please & thanks."

Turn off AutoPlay - that's the 'infinity icon' in the Playing Next menu. https://support.apple.com/guide/music/use-the-playing-next-queue-musb1e6d1c76/mac
