A great album, but it leaked a whole three months before its release date
You’ve got to peep this article on this small blog. It’s a great write-up on how CDs get leaked months or weeks before their release and the impact it has on the music industry and fans alike.

Also listed are some of the most infamous leaked songs from last year. It’s a great read. Check it out if music or piracy interest you in the slightest.
