The second part of my guide to managing music metadata is now live at

In the first part of the guide, I talk through the basics of identifying and automatically updating metadata for your audio tracks using MusicBrainz Picard. In this second part, we walk through Picard’s powerful advanced search and editing features, cover art matching and a whole lot more.

But if an album isn’t found the first time, you can try searching the database in a web browser, which also allows you to navigate through alternative artists, albums, and tracks. There are two methods for doing so from the Picard app. First, highlight a folder and use the Lookup in Browser button to launch a search. Alternatively, a search bar at the top-right of the window allows you to look for any album, artist, or track.
