    If anyone is coming here on their last hopes before they rip their hair out, I completely understand. I was there too. I had one song that loved to seperate itself from the others on my iphone but not in itunes. After 2 hours I found out that the one song that loved its independence had "part of a compilation" checked in the get info section. after that everything was fine. Itunes is an absolute ***** and if you mess one tiny thing up (and you're OCD like me) its a nightmare

    The problem is not on my computer.. all the songs are in 1 album on my computer but on my phone it stays in seperate albums.

    Sure, but the article explains how the same tags can sometimes give different results in iTunes or on a device and what to do to make things consistent. If you give me an album title I can give you specific advice that might help.

    I bought some songs from the Deluxe version and some from the regular version and found no point in buying the same songs again so I just combined the albums which was no problem. Track #1 "The a Team" was also in a seperate album so I put it in there as well.

    The cloud symbol shows that none of the tracks are stored on the phone so what you see is the original store metadata. If you connect the phone to iTunes and sync those tracks to the phone they should merge. That said if either iTunes or the device are showing store content there is a risk that they may display the original store metadata rather than the users own tag details. Signing out of the store and then back in again usually fixes this.

    Did you mean Artist and Album Artist?

     

    Since Ria777 posted this thread nearly 4 years ago I doubt they are still waiting on a solution...

    Nope, 'Album' and 'Album Artist'. Each track in an album can have different Artist. But for the tracks to be in same album, these two fields must be same. I dont understand why Album Artist is a mandatory field. Funny.

  • turingtest2 Level 9 (69,013 points)

    I read your post as suggesting, if unintentionally, that for each track you would have the same value for Album and Album Artist.

     

    Album Artist isn't mandatory provied there is a common value for Artist for all tracks of the same album. If there are different values for Artist they can be linked together with Album Artist. If the tracks are destined for a non-iOS Apple device then you also want a common Artist, or to set Part of a Compilation to Yes.

     

    All this and more at Grouping tracks into albums.

    Awesome fix man, good work and thank-you!

    o Delete album and hide in icloud

    o Go into account (top left in iTunes)

    o Click 'Manage' under Hidden purchases and unhide

    o Redownload

     

    Should have one complete album now.

    The original post was four and a half years ago. Your post may be a little late, and would also only help with purchases from the iTunes store. A thorough approach is given at Grouping tracks into albums.

    I posted now because I recently had the issue come up.   Using the grouping tracks into the same album method for this particular problem is not the right approach.  You should not have to manually edit album information for things purchased through iTunes.  My method is the right one.  It allows the device to re-download and organize on its own instead of forcing it.

     

    If you wanted to edit album information that came from outside of the iTunes store then the other method is correct.
