As requested, how to use
DESCRIPTION - from mutagen
mid3v2 is a Mutagen-based replacement for id3lib’s id3v2. It supports >ID3v2.4 and more frames; it also does not have the numerous bugs that plague >id3v2.
This program exists mostly for compatibility with programs that want to tag >files using id3v2. For a more usable interface, we recommend Ex Falso.

In order to change album name use this option:
Example: Go to the directory where the file is located and run

This will set the album of the song 'Foosong' to be 'Ubuntu'.
