This is intentional, but I admit it's not my favorite thing either.
As you can see, the album art is entirely visible in the headerbar on top (albeit in smaller form) so I kine of wonder what we even need this skinny strip in the Now Playing view for anyway.
Nice taste in music, BTW. :)

When I implemented this view, I worked on the basis of a design where it looked nice on itself. Integrated in the whole UI, it is somewhat odd. I agree.
We could maybe have it in full size but behind the text with the appropriate visual effect such that the text is still easy to read ?
I think that's a great idea. I've submitted a merge request: https://invent.kde.org/kde/elisa/merge_requests/79
