Default Release Date Digital Albums

Trying to add some albums to the database, I came to the conclusion that I couldn't fully fill in the necessary album information because I didn't know the exact release date. I feel like this is more a problem with digital albums, but maybe physical albums have this same problem; I'm not sure.

For clarification purposes, I'll use this album: Final Fantasy VII Remastered Tracks: Vol. 2 on Loudr. I was hoping the release date would show in the tags, but all it says on the Date tag is the year 2013.

Personally, I like to know what the exact date is, but I can't find it on Loudr. Hopefully one of you can help me find out how to find the release date.

there are albums with just the year and people don't die because of that
if the year is at least correct, I guess it's ok

Other shops like Bandcamp or iTunes usually have the release date in the page, if the album is only on loudr you can find it by looking at the page source, for example for this one:
Code:
<meta property="music:release_date" content="2013-12-27T00:00:00" />
This information is probably entered by the submitter so it might not be accurate in some cases, but if you can't find anything else it should be fine.

EDIT: same date on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/fi...ed/id789891792

This is what I was hoping for, thanks a lot! Now my mind can set itself at ease.
