There is a simple way to clear this up. Select My Music and choose the drop down menu on the right, below the search library. Select songs, then View, and finally Show duplicate items. From here you can easily delete all tracks you don’t want by yourself.

Play music all over your home

The condition for this is to have other AirPlay devices. If you do, click AirPlay and then Multiple and you can choose the devices you want to play your music on, such as AirPlay speaker or Apple TV.

Get album artwork

If you want album artwork for the songs in your library, it is very simple to do this. One option is to go to File, then Library, and then Get Album Artwork, as this way you will get artwork for all your albums.

When you want album artwork for a separate album, simply select that album in iTunes library, right click it and choose Get Album Artwork. Make sure you are signed in with your Apple ID and you have checked to 'Share details about your library with Apple’, the option you can tick in Preferences --> Store.

Manually add album artwork

You might not be satisfied with the album artwork offered by Apple, or you simply want a change. Either way, you can put the image you want on the album cover. You should click the album cover and select all tracks in the list below it. Once you have selected them, go to Files > Get Info.

Open your Safari browser and find the appropriate image (consider using image search on Google). When you find a satisfying image, simply drag it to the Artwork box and you have successfully changed your album artwork.
