Does anyone know how to get the iOS 10 Apple music to play ALL songs from one artist? I want to play all the songs, from each album, in order from start to finish. In the old Apple music all you had to do was select the artist and it would do exactly that. Now when I select the artist it displays all the individual albums, which in turn need to be selected, to play individually. The only other option I can find is shuffle all, this will play the songs from a particular artist but in random order.

This is driving me nuts, can anyone help? I'm sure it's a simple thing to do but I'm failing to find it.

I'm not a big music fan with my iPhone, but can't you just create a playlist of your favorite artist from the albums you own and then sync it to your phone?

I've done that exactly thing already but thought it was a bit of a faff when the music app should do it anyway.

Not as simple or straightforward as tapping one button unfortunately but what you can do as a workaround is navigate to the artist you want. Then hold down on the first album and select play next.
Then do the same for each of the other albums there, but select play later instead.

This will add each album in its entirety and in order to your queue. Then all you have to do is tap the play button and they will all play in order.

Pain in the butt yes, but it works at least.
