Hi, I been really liking this player and I've been lurking for a while now mostly the Latest Version threads.
I think it'd be nice looking if there'd be away to have the an option to auto hide the album name and artist when overlaid on the artwork. And just apear upon hovering the album.

This assumes you're using Artwork view and version 3.x.
From the dropdown menu under Albums > Customize Panel > uncheck 'overlay fields inside artwork'
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Ideally I'd like it to look like this but have the overlay show up when hovering the album cover.
Displaying the fields below the artwork just moves the text. I'm looking to hide it.
