    Join Songs in iTunes to Play Together as a Group When Shuffled




    Do you want to join a group of songs together in iTunes to play together as a compilation, even when iTunes (or an iPhone, iPad, or iPod) is set to shuffle through a music collection? It’s easy, here is how to set this up:

    Open iTunes and select the songs you want to join together as a group with gapless playback

    Right-click on a song and choose “Get Info” to modify the group of songs

    Click on the “Options” tab, then set “Part of a compilation” to “Yes” and “Gapless album” to “Yes”

    Click “OK” to modify the track group





    The selected songs are now linked together as a compilation and with gapless playback, meaning there won’t be any delays between one track ending and another starting. This also means if the song comes up in Shuffle, it will play as a gapless compilation rather than a single song.

    Compiled songs will play together as groups even when synced to an iPod, iPad, or iPhone, and also when played through iTunes Home Sharing, though the individual tracks are not actually joined together into a single file.

    This is a great setting to enable for albums or song groups that are meant to be played continuously where one song flows directly into the next, like Dark Side of the Moon.
