Whenever a new album comes out there are often no tracks listed. I am just wondering what the process is for adding tracks to album pages. Will tracks eventually be added automatically or does someone have to do it manually? BTW I am just curious I am not writing this to bitch.

For instance, these new albums don't have any tracks on their pages...

The old Last.fm pulled track listings from MusicBrainz. That importer is still running, but does not output to the live site. From what I understand the Last.fm developers wants to create a system to merge album data from several sources and until that is finished I guess there will be no new album data.

This album was released four days ago and here it is complete with tracklist and everything. How did that happen, did I miss an announcement or something? Is the importer live again?

Don't look like that. Perhaps a manual import due to the large interest.

I guess someone on the staff is a David Bowie fan.
