As a musician, the best part of what we do is creating music. However, if you want to be paid for creating, then you have to get into the boring stuff as well. Enter, the DREADED METADATA!
The word “metadata” sounds a little scary and mysterious, but really, it’s just information about data. It puts data in context.
When you release a piece of music, there is an abundance of information that travels across the web. This sounds technical, or for some of us, even a little nauseating. But when you think about it, it’s not that complicated. Metadata includes the following:
- Album Name
- Artist Name
- Song Name
- Copyright information
