Move Release Edit
From MusicBrainz Wiki
Move Album (to another Artist)
This edit moves an album to another artist.
How to do it
- The Move link below the album's name on an album page (or other pages where album details are displayed) takes you to a page where you search for another artist. Select the target artist from the search results, or enter details for a new artist and click on the Add Artist button.
- Before moving an album to another artist, consider the possibility that there are duplicate entries for the album already listed under the target artist. You may wish to merge the albums instead, using MergeAlbums.
- If all the albums by an artist need to be moved, it is simpler to just merge the artists using MergeArtists. If the side-effect creation of an artist alias is not desirable, mention that in the MergeArtists ModerationNote.
- Instead of moving an album to the special artist Various Artists, use the Convert to multiple artists link to perform the conversion. Using ConvertAlbumToMultipleArtists describes the change more accurately, and if you check the "Move tracks to new artists" box, you will taken through a series of pages where you can change the track artist (ChangeTrackArtist) and title (EditTrackName).
- Classical albums follow the ClassicalStyleGuide; these guidelines put performer information in the album title, and use the composer as the Artist for the album. If an album is moved from performer to composer, check the Album mods link for a corresponding EditAlbumName and vote for that as well.
- Links to discographies and/or the MusicBrainz links to Amazon info or cover art can be useful for verifying the correct artist for the album.
If a new artist was specified as the target for the move, it will be created when the MoveAlbum is applied.
