Split Album

For whatever reason, one of the albums in my iTunes library is split, with two out of sixteen of its tracks being regarded in album view as a separate album.

All their fields are identical to one another except for song name and track number, and my iPhone and iPad regard the whole set appropriately as a single album. Any particular known reason why the album would be split like this?

Usually this is caused by a difference in the Artist, like if there is a second artist helping on this song (featuring Blah Blah).

Another cause is that the Compilation tag was set for some but not all. Make it consistent and they should go together.

Sometimes, but rarely the Sort Album or Sort Artist is different, causing this.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
