Direct access to Now Playing on iOS

I’d like to have a “shortcut” to the Now Playing / Screensaver screen on iOS devices. In the desktop application, it’s very easy to get there (e.g. ctrl + S on windows). However, in the iOS app, you have to go to the queu first and then click an obscure rectangle to get there. For me, besides the browsing windows (mainly artists and albums), the now playing window is the most prominent one. A shame it takes so many clicks to get there.
