superluig164 Posted February 26, 2021 Share Posted February 26, 2021 I detailed this in a comment before, but I felt like it warranted its own post. Basically I would like to be able to tag a song on multiple albums by putting the tags in sequentially. For example: "U Got Me" by Bossfight is on Bossfight's EP Next Wave, but is also on the Monstercat compilation album Monstercat Uncaged Vol. 6. I would like record of both. The way I envision this working is to split the album, track #, and album artist tags in order. In this case: Album: Next Wave; Uncaged Volume 6 Track #: 4; 13 Album Artist: Bossfight; Monstercat Obviously as is with genre, we should be able to choose the separating character. The first item of each tag is associated with each other, so "U Got Me" is track 4 on Next Wave. In theory, this could be expanded to any number of albums. On the now playing screen, I would imagine showing the first album would be sufficient, or maybe, for extra protection, prioritize the album with the same album artist as the song itself, if there is one. These albums would of course be listed in all the places you would expect. If I look at Bossfight's Artist view, I should see both his album and Monstercat's compilation, since a song by him is on both. In the Album Artist view, I imagine Monstercat would appear as its own listing, where I could see all of the Monstercat compilation albums. If you are questioning how an album with multiple artists would be handled, well, splitting them apart is not really necessary in the Album Artist tag. As long as they are all the same. If an album is by two people, it could be hard-coded in the tag with an "&" or the word "with" or something. In the Artist view, since the individual songs have the artists separate, the album would appear, and the only place this might cause a problem is in Album Artist view, but I don't think that's a big deal, really.
