What’s the most sensible way to tag this? Create a new release (with identical release date, as shown on Bandcamp)? Or update the previous release? Thanks!
PS: I tried asking this question in the IRC channel yesterday, but is it possible that the Matrix bridge is not working? I didn’t find my question in the public logs, and I didn’t receive any messages.
Ah, good to know! I don’t know when the name change happened. The bandcamp link still mentions the original release date… I will create a second release with an identical date, maybe it can be cleaned up later.
For digital music, note that online platforms often do not display release dates, or will display the release date from an earlier physical release instead (which may sometimes be even earlier than the date the platform itself was launched). In cases where you are not certain that a release date is correct, it’s better to not enter a date at all, or to indicate it in the annotation only while listing your misgivings about it.
since the Bandcamp artist name and URL changed, I don’t believe that change would be reflected in the release date on Bandcamp (nor the published or modified date, both of which are in the page source). that said, you could probably get a clue from that modified date, since they changed the name in the description and album credits. does November 20th seem reasonable for the name change?
