Artist credits should generally follow the actual credit used on the release / track.
See the featured artists guidelines.
If an artist name does not start with a definite article, but is credited with a definite article on a release, include the definite article in the artist credit. The exception to this is where a join phrase is used before the artist name - in this case, include the definite article in the join phrase.
- In the Nutcracker Mood is credited to "The Glenn Miller Orchestra".
- The Chesterfield Broadcasts, Volume 1 is credited to "The Andrews Sisters with the Glenn Miller Orchestra".
Specific types of releases
Some types of releases, like classical, theatre or audiobook releases, have their own, more specific guidelines for artist credits. See Specific types of releases. These guidelines override this one.
