In Google Play Music, when you would select an artist in My Library with multiple albums, it would play the songs album by album, in the order depicted below: Google Play Music

However, in YouTube Music, it automatically shuffles the songs (like below) and there is no option to play the songs album by album: YouTube Music

Is there a solution to this issue?

You are correct.
There is NO option to play by album when on the ARTISTS screen.
The only option one has is to click on Shuffle all

The solution

To play the songs album by album in YouTube Music

While in the artist screen (or any other screen), pick and right click one of the songs that you like and from the pop-up menu choose Go to album

When in the album click on the 3 dots (kebab menu) next to the REMOVE FROM LIBRARY and from the pop-up make a choice between Play next and Add to queue

OR

Go to Library --> ALBUMS

Once in the ALBUMS screen, right click on the album you want.

From the options on the pop menu you can once more choose between Play next and Add to queue.

Difference between Play next and Add to queue

  • Play next
    This choice will add the whole album right after the currently playing song

  • Add to queue
    This choice will add the whole album at the end of the queue.

  • I don't see how this is a solution. I don't want to just add it to the queue to play one time.

  • "I don't see how this is a solution." I don't see why not. "I don't want to just add it to the queue to play one time." YouTube Music acts as a radio which means songs play and stay in queue till deleted. So it is not one time. Your other option is creating playlists and adding full albums. Also, your question is "YouTube Music not playing artist album-by-album... it automatically shuffles the songs". That is what the answer solves. In any case. I'd be happy to know if you can find a better alternative. Nov 1, 2020 at 7:43
