In this never-ending series of events that is The Life of Pablo’s release, it looks like the album is finally available for download. The catch? It’s only available to those who have already purchased it.
According to Pitchfork, a Tidal spokesperson has confirmed that the album is being sent to those who purchased it originally, “as well as to those who in some cases did not receive a download link at the time of the album’s release. Customers that received a refund will also receive a download link as a courtesy from Tidal.com.” Those who want to purchase it today are out of luck, as the spokesperson also confirmed that it isn’t currently available for new customers.
Over the past week, two of the songs from TLOP—”Famous” and “I Love Kanye”—has appeared on Spotify and Apple Music, despite the fact that it was available exclusively on Tidal.
At the very least, this latest development means that Kanye has finally completed The Life of Pablo. Hopefully the release for Kanye’s next album, Turbo Grafx 16, will be a lot less complicated.
