and since (as of right now) 88rising has not applied an additional attribute to the release which directly links to their label, I’m stuck between choosing 88rising Music or 88rising for the release event.
Which label(s) should I choose in this case? (and also, should I add Warner Records to the label field too?)
(Additional info: What I meant by "additional attribute to the release which directly links to their label")
88rising only added more record label information to Rich Brian’s full albums:
I put 88rising Music, because as you pasted, that’s the label that is there. The copyright on many of these are actually 88rising Records or 88rising Music, just to complicate this even more. So, I wouldn’t merge the 2, because 88rising Music is used as copyright. You should definitely add Warner Records as a second label. The actual “imprint” is 88↑. So, 88rising, is the imprint. I’ll add an annotation. 88rising Music should probably only be used as a copyright holder when listed that way. Digital releases are difficult at times because some companies just list the company name instead of their imprint. MB wants the imprint as release label.
I know. I saw that also. I’ve also seen where 88rising Music is used as both. Anytime 88rising Music is used as a record label, choose 88rising. And then just add 88rising Music as the copyright holder if that’s what is listed. On their website & Wikipedia they never mention 88rising Music and all their logos (which is the imprint representation) is for 88rising. On the ones I’ve checked on YouTube so far they all say 88⬆.
Also have now discovered that any release by 88rising that was in association with 12Tone Music is now showing Warner Records. If you have any releases with release dates before July 20, 2021, the imprint should be 12Tone Music, not Warner Records. They have retroactively credited releases by 12Tone Music as Warner Records, much like they did with Warner Bros. Records becoming Warner Records. Of course, if one wants to add new releases with a 2021-07-20 date for Warner Records, they can. But the date shouldn’t be before this.
