Thanks for help previous, but I need to get the renaming of folders correctly. My generated naming yields Artist - Albumname (year). The problem occurs when not all songs were made the same year. This will create Artist - Albumname (1991), Artist - Albumname (1992) etc. for each song created each year. The only fields I could find were "originalyear" and "year" for the script, and both give the same result. Any tips on this?

That is an interesting point, now when SongKong matches an album it should use the release date for all songs so they should all have the same date. But if you've enabled Format:Use Original Release Date then different songs in the same release could have different dates, in whihc case I don't have an obvious solution.

Can I clarify do you have Format:Use Original Release Date enabled ?

Yes - I have enabled use original release date. I think I tried disabling it with no change, but Im not sure now. I still would like to tag each song with the year it was made though, not the year of the album (necessarily). So Im not sure how this can be solved, except saying that there should be something like an "albumyear" tag, that will write the year of the album release as opposed to year tag based on individual songs. I dont know if this exists though.

This is the string I use:

ifnotempty(albumartist,' - ')
+ ifnotempty(album,' ')
+ '(' + (year.length>4 ? year.substring(0,4):year) +')/'
+ ifnotempty(pad(track,2),' - ')
+ ifnotempty(artist,' - ')
+ title

Of course the year field is the albumyear field in normal circumstances, except when you put the originalyear into it instead.

I'll have to raise an issue to consider this further, in the meantime I can only suggest that you don't use the originalrelease date option as the originalreleasedate will still be stored in the originalyear field. You could use another program (i.e Jaikoz) to overwrite the year field with the contents of the originalyear field after they have been renamed by SongKong.

Same issue in 2016 (with the option "Use Original Release Date" enabled).
Is it supposed to be fixed?

Its not really a bug, if you use originalreleaseyear then it will use originalreleaseyear !

How should I do, then, when I'm processing a full album (for example, for a CD freshly ripped), to have all tracks in the same folder AND if I want to have the year of the album in the folder name.

E.g.:
Albums\Natacha Atlas\Ayeshteni [2001]\tracks...


Because, I've just got the following result with this CD:
Discogs Release Id: 1802895
MusicBrainz Release: MB Release Id: 960c6c09-5de9-41bc-8ffc-d2169a0545df


Albums\Natacha Atlas\Ayeshteni [2001]\01 - Natacha Atlas - Shubra.mp3
Albums\Natacha Atlas\Ayeshteni [2001]\03 - Natacha Atlas - Ashwa.mp3
... (all tracks but
Albums\Natacha Atlas\Ayeshteni [2002]\02 - Natacha Atlas - Le Goût du pain.mp3

(All tracks tagged 2001 except one tagged 2002)

What Im saying is if you want the year to be part of the filename and you want it to be the same for all tracks on a release you shouldn't enable the Use Original Release Date option.

OK, now I got the point and will try this way!

(However, wouldn't it make sense to distinguish track-release-year and album-release-year in the properties?)

Yes I think it would that would be a good addition, however note that your standard music players would not actually make sense of this.

Seeing that I'm now elevate to the range of ?Ethusiast? user.
Is it an on-purpose misspelling? (might be a pun I don't understand)
