In fact, after the launch of Apple Music which had its own bugs, the problem seems to have gotten worse instead of better.
How does one successfully get album artwork for the songs in their library that don’t have it? If you only have a few songs that need album artwork, you can probably get away with the one-by-one approach to adding album artwork.
)Addendum: Still doesn't work for some albums, which I suspect may be missing cover art in the i Tunes Store.
Will experiment with adding my own art and seeing if it pulls through Match, and update here.
But if you have a large library of songs without artwork, a sweeping third-party application might be necessary. If you only have a few songs that you need to get album artwork for, you can do so right in i Tunes without the help of any third-party software. The first is to right-click the individual song or album that’s missing album artwork then click .
Luckily, there are free tools to help you clean it up and make sure that never happens again. There was a time when tagging and organising your music took hours and hours.
When I start a station based on a mislabelled song, the following tracks are appropriate and in-theme, but I still have to update the song myself.
That's where the tools we're about to mention come in.
Sadly, if you like any older, obscure or remixed tracks, especially if you're into electronica or independent music, you're going to run into trouble finding what you want.
While I've found that i Tunes Match and Google Music often do a great job of figuring out mislabelled tracks, it doesn't update its metadata in my music library.
