Lost amongst (well, maybe not for our readers but the general public) the crazy release schedule of Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo is the lack of vinyl or really any physical release. Well, as with Graduation and Watch The Throne and Yeezus, we now have bootleggers apparently beating an official release to the punch. The 2xLP pressing of the album is limited to 1,000 copies on clear vinyl through a label called #tidalforall.
You can also get a (what I’d assume is an illegal) digital copy along with the 2xLP set. Someone at Vinyl Collective already received their copy so you can check it out.
I always like to state that it’s weird to report on this kind of stuff, releases that are truly “off the books,” but it’s news. And it continues to point to the neglect of this format (and thus continued bootlegging) by certain artists.
