Amazon (Mistakenly) Releases Bruce Springsteen Album...

Posted by: Jason Tate (12/30/13)
It looks like Amazon screwed up this morning and for a brief moment Bruce Springsteen's new album was available for download on the website. Ummm, oops?

It was up over the weekend too. Idiots.

I guess my question is why it was even on their servers so early. Like, it can't possibly have been necessary to get it up over a month in advance and you're just begging for this kind of thing to happen which ultimately hurts both the artist and amazon itself.

Thanks again, Amazon.

But really, it's appalling that this occurred.

iTunes released the self titled like a month in advance for a few hours at like midnight. The damage was done though.

Music gets uploaded for digital distro early on, for the most part.

Either way, this is so embarrassing for Amazon.

It's happened for years with Amazon. They've posted the previews for songs early, too, even when the option was turned off on the distribution side. They've also accidentally announced record releases, too, by posting it in the system early.

I think we've pissed off more than a few labels over the years by making news posts about the listings haha.
