In windows it looks like



So it is not some hidden character or something

Hello nopeless, and welcome to the forum!

There are two possibilities:

* MB can remove some leading words from the titles (such as articles).

-> So as to adjust the behaviour, see: Preferences (Ctrl+O) -> Sorting/Grouping -> sorting -> ignore words ...

* A specific sort order might be defined for the album name (Album vs. AlbumSort). In that case, the value found in "Album" is used for displaying, whereas the content of AlbumSort is used for sorting. AlbumSort can have been populated even without your knowing it: this is the case for some albums bought from Apple Music Store, where Sort tags are already defined.

-> Verify the checkbox state of Preferences -> Sorting/Grouping -> sorting -> enable custom sort ...,
and the values showing with button [Albums...] (or [Artists...]).

Hey! Thanks for the reply. A lot of things happened so I couldn't get back to music bee and related. Frankly, I also went through a reset of my computer and didn't move this exact album haha. I will definitely try out your solution if I ever encounter this problem again

Have a great day
