How to set, change and delete music tags with Mutagen - Linux Tutorials - Learn Linux Configuration

Tagging music files is a way of keeping a music library well organized and let us search for songs on the base of Artists, albums, genre and other parameters.

Do those GUI programs use “mutagen” at their core?
