i have had my 12.9" iPP for 2 weeks now setting it up as new. I just noticed today that in my Music Library there is a U2 Album. Since I have always been a country music lover/have several of that type album in Library, this U2 album stood out. To my knowledge I have never been charged for it, I check my Apple receipts carefully and know that I definitely didn't order by mistake. Is this a bug showing up? Should I just remove the album or do I need to notify Apple/

It was an Apple event i think when iPhone 6 was announced, Bono came on stage and told everyone that their newest album was free on iTunes (or maybe I was dreaming). I honestly never listened any of the songs.

Yeah, I remember that. Songs of Innocence I think was the album name. Everyone with an iTunes account got it for free. Story goes that Apple actually got a lot of backlash for that because some people didn't want it on their devices.

No, nothing like that. I think you can remove it permanently if you wish.

Oh, I removed it ok, I was just trying to find out if anyone knew why it was there. And as you can see by the date on the article, it's probably been in my music library a looong time so if it was a security issue, I would have been 'gotcha' a long time ago. As you can tell, I rarely go into the Music app.
