How to download your free U2 album from Apple (they didn’t make it very intuitive)

Like all of you, i was excited to get something FREE for once from Apple, after all the thousands of dollars I’ve thrown at them over the years. Unfortunately, they didn’t make it very easy or intuitive to find and get the album, they simply said, “it’s already in your iTunes library.” Weeeeellll it actually wasn’t. But here’s how to get it.

1. Open iTunes.
2. If it opens in LIBRARY mode, click iTunes Store button in upper right.

5. You should see the U2 album cover here. Click the cloud download icon in the upper right corner of the album art. The album should start downloading! (or you can click the DOWNLOAD ALL button in the lower right corner).
