Download it now if you decide to fix iTunes album artwork not showing issue by iTunes is a good tool for backing up, purchasing music, movies and playing. Same problem here on Mac book pro.

I also answer a couple of iTunes Store questions related to gifting items and copying links to songs. Q: I have a number of album covers that got scrambled in the move to iOS 7; some albums now show the wrong artwork.
Any ideas on what happened and how to fix it? Problems with album artwork on iPods and iOS devices are common.
Part 2. How to Fix iTunes Album Artwork Not Showing on iPhone
Sometimes nothing displays at all; other times the wrong artwork appears. To do so, connect the iOS device to iTunes, select it, and click the Music tab in the header bar.
Uncheck Sync Musicand then click Sync near the bottom of the iTunes window. After the syncing is complete, recheck Sync Music —iTunes will have remembered your settings, whether to sync all music or just selected items—and then sync again.
In that case, you might want to start the sync before you go to bed at night.
Add Purchased Music to iTunes
It will be added to iTunes. Back on your iOS device, select all the music you see when you click Music ; then press the Delete key, and iTunes will delete all of the music. Find the playlist you imported, select all of its tracks, and drag them onto the iPhone in the sidebar. Another method that sometimes resolves album artwork problems is to delete the iTunes Album Artwork Cache folder.
Delete the Cache folder, quit iTunes, and then relaunch it. As you display music, iTunes will extract the album artwork from your files and create new items in the cache folder. I explain how to do embed it in those files in another column. Q: When I play the Purchased playlist in iTunes so I can listen to music it contains, it also plays the videos in that playlist.
iTunes: Can’t Change Song Name, Artist, or Album on Get Info Screen
Is there a way to prevent it from doing that? But as with a regular playlist, you can delete anything you like from it. I have two solutions to offer. The first is simply to delete all videos from the playlist. Select them and press the Delete key. This will remove them from the Purchased playlist, but not from your iTunes library. The second option, if you want to keep the videos in the playlist, is to uncheck them.
Your gifting options from an iOS device are limited to albums, though you can gift almost any iTunes item—song, album, movie, or the like—from a Mac or PC.

In iTunes, click the arrow next to the price of any item and choose Gift This Song or movie, or app, and so on—though not a book. Follow the instructions from that point.
If I launch it, it just quits. How can I get it to start working again?
Now there's an app for every media type
I had the same problem. When I launched the iTunes Store, the screen flashed for a second and then quit. The solution was to sign out of the iTunes Store and then sign back in. After that, the iTunes Store app worked properly. Q: I have several friends in different countries. We all want to have the same song, but there are different versions of the song we want. How do I tell each of my friends how to find the song is so we can have same version?
Upgrade your iTunes library
First, the song you want may not be available in all countries. The bit that begins with id identifies the album; the bit after the? Clicking the link will take you to the album on the Web, possibly with the song highlighted this behavior is inconsistent. That should be sufficient for what you need.

Alternatively, select the Tell a Friend option in the same pop-up menu. Deleting the Cache folder may resolve issues involving incorrectly displayed album art. Using an iOS device, you can send an album from the iTunes Store as a gift.
