Add support for "album artist"


I have a feature request: some albums are a collaboration between two/more artists, such as Dark Night of the Soul. But there are cases when the collaboration isn’t in all tracks, means some songs sang by X and the others sang by Y. for example, John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy.

What I’m asking is for a  enhancement for the player, that will recognise the tag “album artist” if exists, and display this value as “artist” when available, and not the “artist” tag, which will change artists in the same album.

Hope I made myself clear, cause as of now - it’s a bit tricky to listen to such an album with “correct” tags.

If there’s another option I’m missing, please let me know.

Thanks a lot!


This has been asked for/suggested before several times. Personally, I doubt it will be added but you never know.

I would really love this feature too!

So would I!
