On every track, release, artist or label page you will see the link ‘Add Tags’. Click on this link to add your tags for the certain track, release, artist or label. After clicking on the link, a small window will open up with a text box. Add new tags and separate them with commas in this box and click ‘Add tag’ to save. You can add several tags for one single track, release, artist or label - The choice of words is entirely up to you.
