In MusicBrainz Terminology, a series is a sequence of separate Releases or Tracks with a common theme, artist, label or genre; usually prominent in the naming of branding of releases or tracks in the series. For release series, individual releases are often denoted with a volume or series number, but this is not necessary for them to be considered a series. A series can vary between two and hundreds of releases.



  • Series of releases can be linked to each other using the PartOfSeriesRelationshipType AdvancedRelationship. Consult the documentation there for guidelines on when to use this relationship. Important: Not all series may be suitable for use with this relationship.
  • The community has agreed upon weak SeriesStyleGuidelines for a select number of release and track series. Other series have have de facto standards in place through community edit agreement.
  • SeriesNumberStyle discusses VolumeNumberStyle and PartNumberStyle which can apply to some release and track series.
  • SubTitleStyle is often used to separate the series' title and a specific release's title.
