A common problem with iTunes is the splitting of songs from the same album into two or more albums. On many occasions the problem is due to inconsistent artist, album artist or album information between tracks. iTunes reads the different information as meaning the songs are from different albums and splits the album accordingly. Making the information uniform for all of the songs often fixes this problem. Sometimes the same information does not fix the problem due to a quirk in the software and you need to perform a trick to get iTunes to group the songs as one album.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Highlight all of the tracks for the album by holding "Shift" on your keyboard while clicking on each song.

  2. 2

    Right-click any of the highlighted songs and select "Get Info" from the menu.

  3. 3

    Click "Yes" when "Are you sure you want to edit information for multiple items" appears on the screen. The "Multiple Item Information" screen will appear. Note whether the Artist, Album Artist and Album boxes are filled in with the appropriate information. Continue to Step 4 if not and skip to Step 5 if the information is present.

  4. 4

    Fill in the missing Artist, Album Artist or Album information and click "OK" at the bottom of the window. Check to see if the songs are now grouped in one album. Open the "Multiple Item Information" window and continue to Step 5 if not.

  5. 5

    Type any letter on the end of the Artist, Album Artist and Album information and click "OK." The album is now grouped together, though the information is incorrect due to the extra letter at the end of each of the information boxes.

  6. 6

    Open the "Multiple Item Information" window, delete the letter at the end of the Artist, Album Artist and Album information boxes and click "OK." The album should remain together.
