I last iTunes Apple have changed algorithm of displaying picture for Artist. How does it works? Why almost all my Artist's doesn't have artwork?

enter image description here

As I see Alice Cooper have the image:

enter image description here

But why I can't see it in my list?

Update: As I see I can not perform "Show in Apple Music" for this artists. Can it be related with that fact that I have created my own album (Collection) for this artist?

  • the art work is for that album, if you've created your own, then obviously, the albums art work will not be put onto yours...

  • I'm assuming this is music you bought via iTunes? If this music was taken from a CD, Apple will not believe that you legitimately bought this music. and quite rightly so.

  • No, but I have subsciption Apple Music and Apple Match. And part of artists (Alice in Chains, for example) doesn't have this problem.

    @OzzieSpin You are assuming Apple is in-the-right by assuming music obtained from other sources is acquired illegitimately? Ever heard of Amazon, et. all?

For me it shows only artwork for .m4a files. All the artist I have in mp3 format doesn't show artwork image.
