Wikidata includes links to Commons images via various properties. We could use these to finally show some images other than cover art.
The relevant properties seem to be:
P18 "image" - generic property which would be valid for artists, labels or areas.
P154 "logo image" - would be good for labels, some artists have them too.
P242 "locator map image" - would be good for areas.
