I'm not a fan of anyone fiddling with "the knobs" except myself, either...
Other than this, industry rights & regs may be involved - which definitely tend to screw a scientific / historical approach, as we (sometimes suffocatingly) live in a free-market world, where even rice - the world's no. 1 food supplement - can be traded so a world majority may suffer from free and open trade to the point of starvation, while farmers are dependent on stock markets.

Oh well, don't get me started on this.

When it comes to classical music, there are performers (artists), titles, and composers, and album releases. It just seems silly to name Antonio Vivaldi as an artist (performer). No?

Just a thought.

MY thoughts are that those are the two sorts of anomalies you'll always find here. The Pink Floyd track was likely ripped from a remastered version and the system picked up that release date. They can be fixed manually but what a chore. And classical songs tend to show the composer as the artist, rather than the orchestra/band as it is with every other genre. So "released" becomes a difficult to define category; at best it's the same as Pink Floyd, where the release date is when that particular disc was released. Date it was written or first performed would be okay but is that really the "release" date? But I assume that the song metadata just doesn't have anything in that slot. Again, it could be a manual fix but what date should be in there?

Something is wonky about the release dates shown on certain song pages. After digging around, my guess is that the problem occurs when the song has no full date associated with it, but only a year.
Example 1: https://radioparadise.com/musi... â†’ The “What's Playing” page correctly shows 1973, but the song page reads: “released: 2013”.
Example 2: https://radioparadise.com/musi... → should be 1716 as shown in the list, but on the song page: “released: null”…

And while I'm at it: it would be nice if the “What's playing” entry in the Music menu would act as a regular hyperlink that can be right-clicked or long-pressed or shift-clicked, for instance to open it in a new tab.

Yup this is the right place.
We've had a few complaints from Germany recently.

Upon investigation it seemed to start with this IP
https://whatismyipaddress.com/...
Which is  reporting as a  DTAG  asset  in Hamburg.

We are hoping it's temporary.   As at the moment every complaint has involved  that node.

Their might be an issue with the most recent Android update.   I'll have to look into this.
But in general battery optimization is the first thing to try disabling on apps having issues. 
As it has been the cause of all sorts of quirky behavior since it was introduced.

That lets you manage which apps are battery optimized.
