    xbox music is boring without those artist background playing on the official xbox music app for WP. I found a way to have those background.

    -Search the artist you want to get the background in the store.
    Ex "Paramore"
    -Then click on any album, Then press the 3 dots on the lower right.
    -Then press add to. Then collection.
    -Make sure that you off the "Show streaming music in my collection" in the settings.

    Thanks a bunch! I just did this to add album art to my 810 that's running 8.1. Nice to have backgrounds for the artists back up, although some of them are album covers or weird photos not of the artist.

    After Pressing Add To there is no Collection Option. Any guess?

    This is now working without going through all those steps. Just update to latest developer preview version and Xbox music update.
    Also now shows artist on the lock screen too (you may have to deactivate, then reactivate to get it working)
    P.S. I don't have a Music Pass, just local MP3's on my SD Card.
