I'm trying to add a new album to an existing artist and I cant seem to add any. how do you do it?

Read this: To add a new album, click on a release below, then on the next screen click on the album found.

Once the new album is created you will be redirected to their page where you can fill out as many details as possible.

Click the link below to choose a version of the release

ERROR: The URL Does not contain "release-group". MusicBrainz API may be slow, try a page refresh?

If the album you are trying to import isn't under the artist "Missing Studio Albums" list then you need to add the Musicbrainz Release Group ID.
On Musicbrainz select the album, on the next page click Details and copy the Permanent link containing release-group.
back on audiodb copy that to the Musicbrainz Release Group box.

Make sure its the "Release Group" URL and not the individual "Release".

Trying the same thing. Why is this so convoluted? Don't even understand why MusicBrainz is involved at all. Anyway, where is that notorious 'Musicbrainz Release Group box' here on AudioDB where I should paste the release group link?

We use the MusicBrainz ID as the unique key here.

It keeps everything linked and is important to provide standardization of naming and ID's with all other services.

What about different editions of the same album? The album "Zanaka" by "Jain" has different songs and cover arts depending on the edition (compare , but all of them share the same release group ID (https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/5e22a116-ccfd-477c-8ad9-94f69d7b9861). The problem starts when the current version chosen (https://www.theaudiodb.com/album/2253511) is missing at least 6 songs from the deluxe version, including "Dynabeat". How could I add this new album (or at least change album versions) in this case?

Generally, we re-import the special edition.

It's one of the downsides to being a "simple" music database that we can have only 1 version of an album, but it has lots of benefits as well
