Hi, what would be the “artist” name if a song is instrumental? I couldn’t find it in help section.


Performance relationship on recording or release?

Hi josph, it doesn’t really matter if there’s vocals or not, it just means you wouldn’t assign any kind of ‘[artist] does vocals on [recording]’ relationship, because that obviously doesn’t exist.

For the track artist, just put the album artist as usual, or use whoever’s credited in the credits/ on the back of the release :slightly_smiling:

edit: let us know if it’s still a bit unclear

To add to @aerozol’s answer, the relevant guideline is doc/style/artist credits.

On a separate note, as it says in the Discourse guidelines:
