Is it not possible to watch a music video in landscape mode?

I was about to watch a music video on my new iPhone using the stock Music app. The video plays just fine in portrait mode. When I rotate the phone to landscape mode, instead of the video going full-screen, I get the "album cover view" (or whatever it's called) while the audio keeps on playing. See my screenshots below.

Portrait mode:

After rotating to landscape orientation:

Surely this isn't the intended or desired behavior. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a known issue on iOS 8.x?

Playing it through the Videos app rather than the Music app will allow it to be viewed in landscape mode.
