While Kanye West has stated that his The Life of Pablo album would never go on sale, it now is… via TIDAL.
A rep for TIDAL confirmed to Pitchfork that Kanye’s latest album is now available for commercial download… but there’s a catch. You can only download it if you received a download code, which was given to customers who purchased it at the time of release.
“The latest version of The Life of Pablo is now being delivered to the individuals that 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.”
TLOP was previously only available for streaming, exclusively on TIDAL… but now, those early fans who bought it, get to finally download it.
Unfortunately, new TIDAL subscribers cannot currently purchase the LP.
