    So all of my albums have the album artwork, and I have the option to show it on the lock screen turned on, but when music is playing my lock screen is just grey, as is the music+videos tile. I used doubletwist to sync all my songs and then used MPAtool to get any album artwork that hadn't already synced.

    Thanks, but my issue wasn't there, the album artwork is there in the music+videos app but it just won't show up on my lock screen

    Ok, I've just realised that this is not a feature, it only shows a picture of the artist from the xbox music database (which I have turned off), nice one Microsoft -.-

    Have the exact same problem, and I turned off Xbox music database. Kind of sad that you need to have that on to have the cover art displaying.

    The lock screen will show an artist background image, not the album artwork.

    The album artwork shows while you are playing music inside the music hub correct? But behind the album artwork, there should appear artist image.

    If it is grey behind you need to go into mpatool and add it. Don't add the album artwork since you say it is already there. Add a background image for the artist you are playing.

    Even if the setting to connect to Xbox music is off, you can still add artist images. You can add one you find online or one provided within the app (pulled from last.fm)
