Please add a "Country" tag so that you can specify where tracks are from. This would be useful for searching, filtering and sorting.

    Thanks @von Bordwehr for submitting this idea. We’re tracking demand for this feature. Curious, by country do you mean the location of the label? The country where the artist is from? Or the country where the artist is now based in/want to be associated with. Maybe cause in electronic music the idea of a "location" is a bit murky so I'm really interested about your use case.

    Thanks for the comment. You're absolutely right that in many cases it's not at all obvious what should go in a "country" field, and perhaps there's a better term than "country". I currently use the Producer field to fill in the "country" the artist is primarily associated with, just so that it's easy to find, say, all music from a specific country, or at least by artists associated with that country. While there will be many cases where it doesn't really make sense, I find that it's useful for quickly locating things. An option to add more than one tag – like with tags for samples and instruments in Kontakt, Maschine, etc. – would make it easier to get around the murkiness of origin.

    Indeed I think your other idea about tagging is perhaps more flexible. But I'm leaving this idea open for upvotes in case others wanna chime in. 🙂

    I use the tags Eng, Esp, Rus, Ukr, etc. in the Lyrics field. But it would be nice to have a separate field for the country or language of singing.

    The tag of the original release year is also missing. For example, when it's modern covers and remixes of songs from the 80s, 90s. I use the "Catalog No" field for this. But it would be cool to have a separate field for the year of the original, in addition to the Release date.
