Apple Style Guide requirement for bands

Apple Music/iTunes recently updated their guidelines, introducing a major change in the metadata requirements; from now on all band members/musicians performing on a track must be listed with their instrumental roles. This task is pretty simple and can be done directly in your dashboard:

  1. Select the track you want to edit;
  2. Scroll down to the Performers section;
  3. Click on “+”;
  4. Type the name (it's recommended to provide full legal name here);
  5. Select the instrument from the list;
  6. Keep adding new performers then Save and close. 

Please note: 

  • If you don't want to release you music on iTunes/Apple Music you could consider skipping the aforementioned steps.
