A chronological album sorting plugin for MusicBrainz Picard.


To install the script, run Picard and select OptionsOptions...PluginsInstall plugin... and select Check the box next to the plugin to enable it.


The plugin modifies track metadata in three ways:

  • The date field is set to the earliest available date (i.e. date or originaldate, whichever is chronologically first).
  • The originaldate field is also set to the earliest available date.
  • The albumsort field is set to the album title prefixed with the earliest available date.

If an earliest date is not available, the metadata for the track is not modified.
