It's on the UK one just now but not if you search raconteurs - try searching consolers instead and scroll down the results a bit. I'm confused as to what's happening

Also...the cover art that comes with itunes download isn't even the official one with the band name or anything..nor does it come with a digital booklet...? haha what the hell is going on???
Something is definitely wrong here.

I'm not for listening to or downloading this prior to the 25th but the first second of "Five On The Five" sounds like the Raconteurs playing "Five On The Five" :wacko: What's going on?

Here's the URL to "Five On The Five" so you can see that it is indeed there:

No surprise there......this "modern" world can be a bit haphazard.....likely, some 40+ year old middle-management guy gave the OK for it, without ever having heard of them.....
Kinda depressing, really.....

This happened with Bjork's Volta. It was up for six hours and it was leaked. Damn iTunes workers :angry: & :wub:

I'm on the UK iTunes store and it's showing this album as Warner not XL. I think that XL will be requiring iTunes to ensure that the proceeds are going to the correct record company and performer

This is all so so so so so fucked up. Some record store assholes putting the album up for sale, unaware of the lawsuit that's going to be brutally shoved up their unwilling anuses, ok, I can see why someone would be stupid enough to do that.

But iTunes? I mean, aren't the people who work for the iTunes store supposed to be PROFESSIONALS???

I don't know if anyone else thinks this, but it might be possible that the band/management have heard about it leaking and would rather it be on the internet to be paid for instead of illegal/free downloaders?

im probably wrong, but it would make sense.
edit:

it is probably just a mistake or something :/

Thats what I suspect as well. Atleast I hope so. To be honest, I really wasn't ready for this album to be out today.

i'm thinking someone just made a huge mistake, and if thats the case, i wonder if the band will freak out on apple/itunes like jack did on dj electra after she played icky thump on the radio.
