Collection does not order by date

Hi all,
I had, lets say an artist collection, that was called "artist". That collection included photos that were captured 3 years ago.

Today I dragged and dropped the photos, once they have been imported to lightroom. So I dragged them from "Previous Import" to the collection "artist". Unfortunately in that collection now the photos are not sorted by date and my last photoshoot is mixed making harder to rate the pictures, as I can not compare them directly with the previous and next ones.

Any ideas on how I can solve that?

Have you tried the sort order control under the grid?
