How to Remove U2’s Songs of Innocence Album from iTunes

1 minute read

Last week on September 9, Apple made U2’s new album Songs of Innocence available in users’ iTunes libraries and iOS devices through October 13.

There was Twitter backlash, and Recode reports that after Apple got inundated with requests to delete the album, it launched a support page with instructions, which are:

  1. Go to
  2. Click Remove Album to confirm you’d like to remove the album from your account.
  3. Sign in with the Apple ID and password you use to buy from the iTunes Store.
  4. You’ll see a confirmation message that the album has been removed from your account.

Chances are you probably won’t offend U2 by removing it, for sales of their previous ones have reportedly skyrocketed since the surprise debut. Plus, they reportedly made more than $100 million off the deal, according to the New York Times.
