Query to return random CD/album artwork URL for a genre and release date (decade)


I’m trying to create a POC demo that uses the MusicBrainz API to retrieve a random release from a given decade and genre (for example, 80s rock). Then the release would be used to retrieve the cover artwork, assuming it exists. I’ve looked at the documentation and tried to craft a query for this, but have not been able to. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance


I don’t believe it’s possible to ask the API for a random result, or to specify how search results are ordered.
