How to Add or Delete Custom Artwork to a Song in the Apple Music App for Windows

When it comes to album covers and artwork, listeners usually have very little say in the matter. What you see is what you get. But it doesn’t always have to be the case.

Fortunately, the Apple Music app on PC lets you add custom artwork to songs and albums, regardless of whether you’ve added them from your PC or have simply added them to your library from the cloud. Here’s everything you need to know to customize the artwork of your songs.

  3. Navigate to your image, select it, and click Open.
  4. Once it is uploaded, click OK to confirm.
  5. Your song will now gain its new artwork.

Do note that adding new artwork to a streamable song (songs not added by you from PC) will not be reflected on your other devices. The artwork will remain localized to your PC only.

If, the original artwork doesn’t return after deleting the artwork added by you, remove the song from your library and add it back again. This will restore the original artwork.  

And that’s it. Go ahead and change the album covers and artwork of songs in your library as you wish. 

There aren’t many apps and services that let you customize your library so deeply. We’re more than glad that Apple has taken such a turn, for it could prompt other services like Spotify to do the same. We hope you found this guide useful. Until next time!
