You know how iTunes recently downloaded the new, free U2 album, no matter whether you wanted it or not?

That’s not going over as well as it could have.

Per Re/Code, Apple has released a new support document detailing how to get rid of the new U2 album, Songs of Innocence.

The document states that users should first visit the special Songs of Innocence removal page at http://itunes.com/soi-remove. They will then need to click “Remove Album,” before signing in with the Apple ID that they have associated with purchases from the iTunes Store.


The album caught users off guard in that it was coordinated as a gift to every iTunes customer, which then appeared as an automatic download for anyone who didn’t expect – or want – the new album.

Those who did purchase the album by clicking on the “Free” download link in the iTunes Store, but who now wish to rid themselves of it, will find the album hidden from their Purchased list after visiting the removal portal. If they desire its future return, it can be unhidden at any time.
