Can't tell albums from singles, or what release dates are


Look at the screenshots. This is the iOS app. No way to distinguish release dates, can't sort by them, can't tell an album from a single from an EP. It's all guess work.

Some of us still like listening to entire albums! =)

I think its always albums unless your searching by song.

Basic limitations of track metadata / ID tags:
1. There's only an "album" field for the album / EP / single name, "title" for track titles, and no album / EP / single type
2. Sonos only uses a small subset of a track's tags, so the "year" (AKA "release date") is never shown

I often append "EP" or "Single" to the album title. It's the only workaround I know.
