But it turns out that this is a local-only, self-stored music problem. iCloud Music Library, when matched to your local music, isn’t affected; once it’s matched, Apple have their own artwork online.
I can’t help coming to the conclusion that self-stored music collections are not a profitable enough use case for Apple.
