While iTunes and iOS iphone have lots of microphones for my artists, I recently downloaded Apple Music for my Android Note 9. In that version, the vast majority of my artists show either a photo or it shows the album cover from one of the albums (something it used to show as a default prior to 12.5). Itunes 12.5.1 free download - Apple iTunes, Apple iTunes (Classic), iTunes iSync, and many more programs.
I reverted to iTunes 220.127.116.11, but I had to clean out the registry of all instances where 'apple, ipod, itunes' are referenced.

NOTE: If syncing with iTunes 12.9 on Mojave, you can still drag and drop.ipa. Files onto the iDevice icon and they will download to the device and install. Configurator is something of an incomplete substitute, but it has the drawback. Itunes 12.5.5 free download - Apple iTunes, Apple iTunes (Classic), iTunes iSync, and many more programs.
