Here's what is funny. I store my music as FLAC with album art embedded. No music app that uses the default media scanner (to include the new Google Music) will display album art! However, PowerAMP will, but it's the only app.

So, how do you trick Google Music into displaying album art? I'm now re-downloading album art as cover.jpg, and even that doesn't work. I can get it to work in embedded MP3 files, but I prefer to use FLAC.
