After a mysterious Jai Paul release showed up on a Bandcamp, there was a lot of speculation about what was going on. Since he is such an elusive character, it didn’t seem too out of character for him to randomly decide to drop an album via Bandcamp, but doubts started to surface and now his label, XL Recordings, has issued a statement confirming that it is an illegal leak and NOT his debut album.
“As widely reported, on Sunday 14th April, music by XL Recordings artist Jai Paul was illegally made available via a fake Bandcamp account. This music was not uploaded by Jai and it’s not his debut album – it is a collection of various unfinished recordings from Jai’s past.
“Neither XL or Jai will take any money from the sale of this music. We have been working with Bandcamp and PayPal to resolve this situation and they have told us all purchases will be refunded within the next 7 days”
