At long last, Kanye West‘s seventh studio album The Life Of Pablo has finally been released, but it’s not available everywhere just yet, and the release has suffered a few annoying hiccups.
As The Verge reports, Kanye used his appearance on today’s episode of Saturday Night Live to announce the album’s release after performing the opening track Ultralight Beam. Shortly after, the album went up for sale on his website, but crashed the site.
Since then, The Life Of Pablo has gone on sale via the Tidal website, which is charging a cool AUD$24 for a download of the album. West’s website is still having issues, but a Tidal stream of the album is also available below. If you’re not a Tidal subscriber, you’ll get 30 second previews of each track using the stream.
The Life Of Pablo is reportedly being sold and streamed exclusively through the Tidal website for a week before it gets a wider release, but it’s been noted that some Tidal streams of the album appear to be missing tracks, while the song Fade is (strangely) a reworked version of Facts, the song which precedes it on the album.
It appears that after changing the title of his new album four times, Kanye has also changed its album art to a different version of the original orange-backed design by Peter De Potter. The album’s final tracklist contains 18 songs, including Waves, which was the final thing delaying the album’s release.
