Spotify vs. Screen Timeout

    Is there any way to disable the screen timeout/lock feature when using Spotify? I have them enabled for security purposes, but for video apps like YouTube and VLC, these features are disabled as an in-born setting. I played around with all the settings on my phone, the app, the lock screen, etc etc etc but I can't seem to figure it out. I like to have the app stay open and stay on top and not time out the screen on me while I am studying or reading so that I can add songs I like to my playlist if I come across them on the radio, and I'd like to not have to disable the screen timeout every time to do it.
    For reference, I use an S8.

    So you want the screen to stay on just when this particular app is running, and the app itself doesn't do it. If never used Spotify because I'm not in the US.
    Possibly it could be accomplished with a Tasker macro.
