    Reading in the forum there are so much ways to "get artists backgrounds back to WP8.1"... but none of that worked for me
    Since lumia 830 is my fist Lumia, I don't know how XBOX Music app was before... and I don't know very well how beautiful backgrounds are...

    The pont is that most people say that "now you can only get background if you but music in the xbos music store"... I resigned myself to that, but... recently I notice that I have backgrounds in some artist but in some others not... here are some examples... I have not bought this music in xbox music app

    My music is perfectly organized by folder and with all ID3 info (like artist, album artist, cover, name of the song, album, genre, etc etc... iTunes is very helpful with that task). I use the ID3 2.3 version in all my songs (that's why windows explorer is not compatible with ID3 2.4)... So what's happening? what can I do?

    That doesn't work in all cases.

    ​XBM is just broken.

    The only 100% solution is to use a better music app.

    The easiest way is to let Zune tag your music on your PC. Then sync it to your phone. Gets me backgrounds in the app and on the live tile.
