I can no longer find “Jazz” in the list of genres when creating my release, why is that?
As announced in this article, Jazz releases now require detailed metadata in regards to their contributors.
In order for us to be able to deliver these detailed metadata, we have created a separate release creation tool in the Backstage, specially designed to support all the required information regarding Jazz contributors.
- To learn how to use this new tool, please refer to this tutorial.
- For more information on the new metadata requirements for Jazz contributors, please check the iTunes Metadata Style Guide.
If you have any doubts or are encountering any issues with this subject, please contact your Labels & Artists Support team here.
