FAQ / What is an album compilation?

Album compilation is a general term used to refer to a music release made of up of songs not intended to be seen as a single work. Compilation albums are often made up of tracks by various artists, though they can sometimes feature a single artist, a collection of works from a music label or targeted lifestyle themes. A comp can be a retrospective, greatest hits or a sampler of an artist’s career, a collection of unreleased tracks or some combination of these. Comp tracks are usually collected according to a common characteristic, such as popularity, genre, source or subject matter. Compilation albums may also employ traditional product bundling strategies.
