So this drops on Monday, but I haven’t really seen any mention here. Anyone excited?
They’ve pretty much done the impossible in the internet age, in both promising that it wouldn’t leak, and seemingly managing to pull it off too. Added hype comes via generally very favourable listening party reviews, while massively underwhelming lead single H.A.M has been cut from the album.
Unless it's absolute balls it will get 12.4 on Pitchfork, so most of you will hear it anyway.
