I have a large number of MP3 music tracks without MP3 tags. I would like to add the tag data.

I understand the mechanics of using the various GUI tag editors as well as how to use ID3V2, but my question is where do I get the tag data from? Is there a convenient way of finding out, for example, what year a particular song was released in?

MusicBrainz Picard tags and provides the data all at once.
To install, open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and enter

sudo apt-get install picard

Look into MusicBrainz Picard - especially the audio fingerprinting part.

Short excerpt from the documentation:

use the Scan toolbar button to lookup files using their AcoustID, which is a unique finger-print associated with each recording.
