You know that new U2 album that suddenly appeared in your iTunes as though by magic?
You don’t have to keep it.
Following Apple’s product launch event last week, the company announced that every iTunes user would receive U2’s album Songs of Innocence for free, whether they wanted it or not. (Take a look at your music library, if you haven’t already. You’ll find it right there between Rattle and Hum and Under a Blood Red Sky.)
Luckily, due to snowballing user complaints from people not interested in being force-fed Bono, the company has released instructions for how to free up that space for albums of your choosing.
Here’s what you do:
- Go to http://itunes.com/soi-remove
- Click the “Remove Album” button
- Sign in with the Apple ID and password you use to buy from the iTunes Store
- You will receive a confirmation that the album has been removed
