Walkman Shows Same Album Art for all songs !!!

I have Sony Xperia M2 Dual with android update 4.4.4 build 18.3.1.B.0.18 and my Walkman version is 8.5.A.0.6.

My issue is,  Walkman showing same album for all songs. I have cleared album art from:

Internal Storage > Android > data > com.sonyericson.music > files > cache > Content cache and thumbnail-generic.

using file commander. I also cleared cache data of Media Storage from Apps.

 

Still problem persist Slightly frowning Face

 

Pls tell me how to resolve this issue or How to turn off showing album art.

 

ThnX

Then you need to transfer your music to a Pc and use a program like mp3tag which will amend the hard coded info like artist and album art etc

Re: Walkman Same Album Art for all songs !!!

click on a track. If it's got the album cover as a small image at the bottom-left, click on that image. When you have the large image displayed, click on the three dots at the top-right, choose "edit music info", click in the small image there and choose "clear album art".  You can edit the album info in the same process as it sounds like all your tracks are labelled as the same album - that can happen if they're all in the same folder.

Dear Sony,

I have the same issue. Let you understand. If I have the same name on an Album, but there are songs with different covers, but they have only one name of Album, the WALKMAN app reads them as an single cover (displaying only one). The other covers that are (setting from mp3tag from PC, just like me) are erased from viewing in the WALKMAN app. Fix this! Let every song to have what cover we want to set, even if there are in the same album.

Hi,
So uhm I kind of solved this issue; First I took a screenshot of my default album art and then I just cropped the picture into a square format and then I applied it. It works fine right now!
