      Description

      Right now this is a style guidline responsible for this kind of thing.

      This approach has a few disadvantages:

      • not translatable: [unknown], [untitled] will always remain english words
      • only plausible for people who know this style guideline
      • song titles are indistinguishable from song names that actually start and end with [ and ] like this one

      I suggest there should rather be a flag for unknown and untitled.

      I made a mockup for the interface which quickly turned out to be naive since a recording can be named after a Song and an unknown Song.
