I am often surprised by the treatment of MP3 names by the native music player, Play Music. Fairly frequently albums are split, or unexpected titles pop up, etc. I am pretty meticulous about ID3s in my collection, and I often can't exactly determine the reason for the unexpected behavior.
Luckily, for those files I copy directly to the phone (Nexus 4), I can fix the issue fairly simply with an app called MP3dit (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ADnet&hl=en). For those that I upload to the cloud via Google Music Manager I am not aware of any such option. Is there a method for changing these? I can't find any alternatives/plugins to Google Music Manager, or at least not yet.
I thought of trying the "Keep on Device" thumbtack button - doing keep, making the edit, and then unkeeping it. However, this is would be tedious and unwieldy, plus I can't seem to find the location of the file once it is downloaded.
One, but far from the only example. Tags looks uniform, but player splits album. And that one funky artist name with all the extra spaces!
1 - Is there a way for me to change the artist/track/album info on these cloud-stored songs?
2 - Can anyone shed some light on the naming system in general? I'm fairly certain it isn't simply ID3s. Some albums that look totally uniform on my hard drive are then split when copied to the Nexus 4 (both on device and remotely stored, but at least those on the device are fairly easily fixed)
