Is it possible? I am coming from a Nexus 5 and I really miss that feature. I thought it was a KitKat Feature?

If there's a way to get the AOSP lockscreen then I think it will be possible. However in the current state there's only the Walkman widget on the lockscreen. I'm not sure but maybe you could get AOSP lockscreen by digging system folders and trying to install XperiaLockscreen.apk or whatever it's called. It will of course fail but you should get AOSP lockscreen until next reboot, but I'm not sure if it will work or which folder it's in since I don't own a single Sony smartphone.

You know I think the latest walkman update has broken the lockscreen update, I was able to pause, skip track form the lockscreen before but now I can and the lockscreen widget behaves really oddly, try swiping left or right on the clock and it snaps back to the clock (if I want to add a new widget I have to be quick) :/

I'm missing this too. Wish it was an option.

Extremely disappointing that there is no fullscreen album cover on the lockscreen.
I installed Xposed and Serajr Xperia Xposed Module. There you can disable the Xperia Lockscreen. However, nothing happened after activating and rebooting.
So still no full screen album cover

Same here, PowerAmp, Play Music & even the Walkman app don't display lockscreen album art meaning Sony have disabled it for some strange reason.

Bah I was thinking about how to fix this seems you guys have already exhausted all options.

This is definitely on my list of niggles for the phone
