    That's strange because I still have the option to delete my music and everything works normally. Perhaps try deleting the app and then reinstalling it.

    Any chance that it's showing you a song that's in the cloud (like a previous purchase or something) and not on your computer to be able to be deleted?

    I am in the middle of renovating my iTunes library. When I select a song and press the delete key I get the option is keeping the file or not. I am keeping the files for now, then the selected song is removed. But if was a ITunes Store purchase the album remain with a iCloud icons by it for re downloading later on. That is as far as I've gotten so far. Still getting use to the new iTunes.

    I had the same problem. The new itune update is not good. OPTION + DELETE worked. You could try.

    Nothing has changed when it comes to sorting by date added.

    I know, it's been frustrating me to the point where I am now going to change my default mp3 player. I can't see how to look at All Music to find the ones I want to clear out and make sure they go into the trash, not just get removed from the library.

    Option+Delete works. It's easy enough to do, once you figure out how.

    I have found out that I can see all the music by clicking on 'Songs' across the top, just below the timeline and player controls. They have organized it differently, for better or worse.

    ----------

    That works for me. Thank you SO much! I was getting so frustrated.
