Last week Bon Iver’s latest album was allegedly leaked by iTunes.
The self-titled album will be officially released on June 20 but is already widely available on file-sharing sites.
Apple refused to comment on their part in the leak but according to the release notes posted on several sites iTunes accidentally made it available in their store.
Bon Iver fans, who have waited nearly three years on Bon Iver’s second album, are ecstatic about Apple’s alleged error.
On Last.fm several of Bon Iver’s new tracks are listed in the top 100.
Although some might have bought it legitimately, we assume that most of these folks simply couldn’t wait another month and chose to pirate it instead.
Can you blame them?
