An artist sorting plugin for MusicBrainz Picard that removes the definite article (i.e. "The") from artist sort names.
To install the script, run Picard and select Options → Options... → Plugins → Install plugin... and select
artistsort.py. Check the box next to the plugin to enable it.
The plugin modifies track and album metadata by setting the
albumartistsort fields, respectively, to the artist's name without the prepended definite article.
