In cmus is there a way I can show the album's name instead of the artist?

Currently my library looks partially like this: library also, based off that image, shouldn't the "Track" part on the right show the tracks in that album?

I can view the tracks in the sorted view: tracks

Cmus isn't entirely intuitive about this. Use the win-toggle key (space) to show an artist's albums and the win-next key (tab) to move focus to the track list.

See the following tutorial for more information:


Not exactly what you're looking for, but cmus 2.6.0 now show all tracks when artist is selected in the tree view.
