Popular music tracking and discovery app MusicHarbor has received a big update today with one standout feature sure to capture the attention. Following changes to Apple Music, MusicHarbor can now help you follow specific record labels for the first time.

The update, which available to be downloaded now, lets you track labels in much the same way you would artists and everything will appear in your release feed just as you might expect it to.

There's also a brand new record label profile page, where you can go to see their releases grouped by type.

Apple's recent Apple Music API changes made this all possible, with developer Marcos Antonio Tanaka wasting no time in taking advantage.
