Default Now Playing Screen...?

Whenever I hit the now playing button, it's always showing the artwork that I added from a year ago & that has been in my library for some quite time. Is this supposed to be normal? Would like to see my newly updated albums in the now playing screen..but it's always showing the same artwork every time.
Or is it me being impatient due to the fact that I have 525 albums in my library and I have to wait for the artwork tiles to flip

If you have album art embedded into the mp3 file you can delete the artwork cache of Zune and the cache will rebuild itself after a zune software restart, hopefully that will give you updated pics.
Steps:
1st) Make sure hidden folders are shown
2nd) on explorer navigate to C:\Users\**Your User Name**\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Zune\Art Cache
3rd) Select all the files in there, delete them.
4th) Close explorer, close Zune if you had it open, restart Zune, wait a few mins for it to rebuild cache from embedded album art or download from internet if you have that enabled.

I've done this several times after Zune decides to show 100px*100px album art that I dunno where it gets from ( I embed all my album arts using Media Monkey and album Art Downloader software).

Ever since updating to Zune 4.8 about 20% of my albums show the 100x100px album arts, they look washed out and terrible. I've deleted my cache and even embedded album art within zune itself and still it refuses to use the HQ pictures... I think my Spotify install is culprit.

Well that sucks. Sorry about that, that's the only idea I have.

You may want to try deleting all the music on your Zune and resyncing it...
