get song artist mp3


Hi, (i think this is a little more deep than newbie, but i am not sure where to put this.)
I dont know if there is any functions in bash that helps you to get the artist of a mp3 file. The artist usually appears in the properties details of the file.
Thanks,
Ted

Take a look at eyeD3. Maybe it is what you're looking for.
