Please correct me if I'm wrong but the album title isn't exposed by the status-json file. 
I'd really like to be able to expose this as well.  I'm using EZStream but I think the configuration / exposure needs to be configured on the Icecast2 side.

There is none:
IceS2 sends *all* metadata that is in the file. You can check the metadata of your input files e.g. with ogginfo to see if there is a AMBUM tag included.
If you use IceS0: don't. It's deprecated for more than a decade. There are other source clients that do similar things. e.g. ezstream.
