I recently uploaded some releases by an artist who only specified a release year. As recommended in the Uploading music submissions handbook, I entered January 1 for the date of that year.
- When I review the release on the Dashboard, it shows the correct year (e.g. 2017).
- When I edit the release, it shows the correct date (e.g. 01-01-2017).
- When I view the release in the Player, it shows the previous year (e.g. 2016).
- If I edit the release date to February 1, the correct year is shown in the Player.
- if I edit the release date to January 2, the correct year is shown in the Player.
Taking a wild guess that this is time zone related?
