Just a quick thought - you might want to check your flac file and remove
any track metadata in it. When you are using cue sheets it is usually
less confusing to leave the original music file clear of track/album
metadata. The server does not know (yet) to ignore metadata in a file
referenced by a cue file.

hope this helps.

I only know how to do this with the command line flac tool 'metaflac'. To
remove the vorbis comments on a flac file you'd do this:

$ metaflac --remove --block-type=VORBIS_COMMENT file.flac

If you tell us what tagging tool you use, someone may be able to give you
help for the specific tool.
