When updating the directory structure in the path format and reimporting the library to update the paths, the new directory contains the cover art, but the old directory still stays with the old cover art left inside.

Thanks; this does indeed seem to be an oversight. The re-import handling in manipulate_files is not yet aware of album art.

FWIW, though, you probably don't want a re-import just to update your path formats. Use beet move for that.

I have the same issue. My use-case wouldn't be covered by beet move, however: a release saw its release date corrected on MusicBrainz, so became 2012 - something instead of 2011 - something.

@Kernald For that purpose, you may want to look at the mbsync plugin.
