Soundtracks and scores for movies, TV, and musicals should include tags that indicate the version of the soundtrack or score. It is advised to provide these tags as a subtitle versus including them in the main title. The wording that appears on the cover art should match the release title.
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Dazed & Confused
Music Inspired by the Film
The Threepenny Opera
Original Off-Broadway Cast
Where possible and sensible, scores for TV and movies should have the composer in both the Composer and MainArtist roles on the album and tracks.
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
John Williams (MainArtist) John Williams (Composer)
20th Century Fox Fanfare
Main Title / Rebel Blockade Runner / Imperial Attack

Track Artists (for all Tracks)

If all sound recording resources on an album release are from the same soundtrack, the album title should indicate the version of the soundtrack as described above.
However, if the sound recording resources on the album are not from the same soundtrack, you should list the respective soundtrack the track is from as a subtitle with the film title in quotations.
Journey To The Island
From “Jurassic Park”
From “Mad Max: Fury Road”
Depending on the Digital Merchant, this would generally display as such:
- Journey To The Island (From “Jurassic Park”)
- Many Mothers (From “Mad Max: Fury Road”)
The necessity of quotations in plain text and XML for the above examples may vary depending on Digital Merchant.
