Sign in to and click the Subscribe in a reader link (the RSS icon in the subnavigation). Your user ID can be extracted from the resulting URL:<your userid>

Add the following to your Beets config.yaml.

    userid: <your userid>


Add the auto option to the follow section of your Beets config.yaml to automatically follow an artist when an album of theirs is imported into your library.

    auto: yes

Setting the auto option will also unfollow an artist after an album removal if none of the artist’s albums remain in your library.
