Wow! Was not expecting this early of a leak!
It was the failure of Spotify i think. Suddenly the whole album was streamable for a few hours.
Yeah, Spotify made a huge mistake. I think this will have consequences for them. This will cost them a load of money.
I didn’t know it was because of Spotify but I can see why the mistake was made, it leaked on the 29 of december, someone surely made a mistake thinking it was the day to release it.
