tuneupTuneUp Media, the company promising to provide the right information for the mislabeled and untitled songs in your music library, just announced that it has raised another $2 million of funding.

San Francisco-based TuneUp offers a plug-in for iTunes and Windows Media Player that identifies songs based on their “acoustic fingerprint.” The company says it has more than 3 million users who have used TuneUp to clean more than 1.5 billion tracks.

In addition to the core “clean up” ability, TuneUp has been adding features like music videos and concert alerts. TuneUp launched two of those additions, DeDuper for eliminating duplicate tracks and Lyrics for finding lyrics to a song, last September at the DEMO conference co-produced by VentureBeat.

The company also announced its $4.3 million round from IDG Ventures and KPG Ventures at the conference. With today’s announcement, IDG has added another $2 million to the round, bringing the total round size to $6.3 million and TuneUp’s total funding to $8.5 million.
