Music purists everywhere are cringing at the idea of song title - artist. Myself included. Petty, yes, but kind of a huge deal to someone who sees music as their life and thus Last.FM as a big part of that venture.

Hi all, thanks for your feedback.

We made the decision to switch the order to "track - artist" on the new site to prevent long track titles from getting cut off in certain places e.g. the Top Tracks chart on your profile page. It is often more useful to be able to read the full track title and only part of the artist name when track titles are long, rather than the full artist name and only part of the track title when artist names are long.

However, we are listening to your feedback and have heard a lot of users saying they don't like this change. As a result, we are considering different solutions that would allow us to switch back to the "artist - track" style.
