    Apologies in advance if this is covered in a thread elsewhere, but I haven't been able to come up with anything that addresses this particular issue I am having.

    Running High Sierra on an iMac Retina 5K, 27in 3.8 Ghz Intel Core i5 with 8GB memory

    iTunes version

    iTunes Library is stored on external drive through USB

    I went to go play some Christmas tunes for the holiday and when I played a song, a completely different song, from a different artist/album/genre, played than what was labeled. I checked numerous other songs throughout my library and found the same issue throughout. Everything is scrambled and it seems to be isolated to music only (movies, TV shows, etc. seem fine).

    If I select by artist, the album titles and songs that come up match the artist, but the album artwork is that of different artists albums. If I play a song, it's not a song from that album/artist/genre.

    If I select by album, the opposite happens; the album artwork is correct but the album title and songs are that of a different artist/album/genre. Likewise, if I play a song, it's not a song from that album/artist/genre.

    If I select by song, the song played is not the song listed.

    Any help to correct this would be GREATLY appreciated
