Default Play Music app

I don't know if this has been brought up already but this is really annoying me, can't seem to find the answer. Does anyone know how to fix the horrible grey background that's appearing in the music app, I've attached a picture to show what I mean. I thought it was meant to display the album artwork but it doesn't do it with any of my albums. HELP!

Are you streaming or playing locally saved MP3s? If locally, then you do have to make sure that all of your music files have embedded album art. Play Music will not grab online data for "offline" files unless you also have the tracks uploaded with album art!

It won't "fill in the blanks" with completely absent album art!

I think, he doesnt mean album art. You mean the missing artist cover, do you?

I solved the problem by uploading my music library to google music. Once it was in the cloud, the play music app grabbed the artist covers online. From there on i could put any music on my phone and it grabbed the artist covers online. Give it a try
