If you *do* want to download the free U2 album, but have a hard way finding how to… (via Ask Different)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/09/18

I had a hard time in iTunes to actually download the (temporarily free) U2 Album Songs of Innocence.

This is probably because most of my iTunes consists of my own CD collection ripped as MP3 files, and the instructions about “clicking the cloud icon” got me in the wrong direction (I assumed cloud icons for each song would appear in the “My Music” Library, but none of the songs showed up that list).

Anyway, via itunes – Free U2 album doesn’t show up in music library, just iPod – Ask Different (see also the picture below, especially the red marked portion):

They are referring to the “Purchased” under the “Quick Links” section on the right of the iTunes Store Home Page. Once you do this “Songs of Innocence” will be added to your “Purchased” playlist on the left.

What apparently happened was that I hadn’t accepted the updated iTunes license agreements yet, so the songs would not added to the library, even though they were “Purchased”.
