Love my new Lumia 820 but as many others of you the Xbox Music Player (as Nokia Music) created a **** of mess with my mp3 songs; 70 % of artists and covers didn't show up correctly. After some time I figured out that the problem only existed where there was no album title in the ID3 Tag (v. 2.3). Opened all the tags on the pc with a tag editor, just a put a name in all of the album fields and now everything works great, all covers show as do artist names. Of course turn off the feature that lets search Xbox Music on the internet for metadata.
I simpley copied the music in Windows Explorer (Windows 8 x64) on the memory card in the phone (didn't sync with Media Player).
Hope that this works for some others with similar problems.

At least it works in Nokia Music for you cause I had the same problem there as in Xbox Music (anyway the whole music hub needs a big update...). It was the album field where the tag was missing and what caused the problem for me NOT the artist field.

Why is stuff that has been around for so many many years such a hard thing to pull off? Its baffling how they can screw this up. I fixed albumart for all my albums in Zune Player, took me hours maybe days but I figured I do this once and then have it sorted. Yeah right.
