Add play controls to albums
Submitted by Allan Day
Currently, if you want to play an album, you have to select the first track to stay playback. This isn't the best experience. The user wants to play the whole album: they don't care what the first track is, nor should they have to think about tracks at all. Ideally there would just be a big play button for the album as a whole.
The current situation is also sub-optimal if you want to shuffle or repeat play an album, since you have to pick a track to stay playback, and then select shuffle/repeat. Not only is this a lot of work, but it forces the user to pick a track, which isn't what they want for shuffle play.

The ... button would show a popover with actions for shuffle and repeat play.
