Please add an option to search for artists/albums in the music player. With over 500 albums this is very hard to do currently.

+1, I'll just add that the search could also support simple simple boolean operations such as:

Get all songs that have the words "country" OR "classic" in their name:

country OR classic

Get all songs that have metal but not remix in the name:

metal AND NOT remix

Many music players don't this when searching and I find it sorely missing.

Also it would be nice to be able to create playlists from search results.

Would be great if we could search for a specific song from 2000 track. This inability for months makes me nervous
