In MusicBrainz, a track is the way a [[recording]] is represented on a particular [[release]] (or, more exactly, on a particular [[medium]]). Every track has a title (see the [[Style/Titles|guidelines for titles]]) and is credited to one or more [[Artist|artists]]. Tracks are additionally assigned [[MBID]]s, though they cannot be the target of [[Relationships]] or other properties conventionally available to entities.
  
In [[MusicBrainz Terminology|MusicBrainzTerminology]], a track is an entry in the track table of the [[MusicBrainz Database|database]]. It usually contains a single song, but there are tracks with more than one song by the same artist, or [[Tracks With Multiple Artists|tracks with more than one song by different artists, not collaborating]].
