Beets is a media library management system designed for obsessive-compulsive music geeks. It catalogs your collection, automatically improving its metadata as it goes using the MusicBrainz database. It also downloads cover art for albums it imports. Then it provides a bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing your music. Beets also includes a music player that speaks the MPD protocol, so you can play music in your beets library using any MPD client.

So now beets makes it easy to tag, catalog, and manipulate your individual tracks. Second, beets can now (optionally) embed album art directly into file metadata rather than only storing it in a "file on the side."
