Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo" may have a physical copy yet.
Kanye West's new album may have the messiest roll-out in recent history, but that hasn't stopped fans from grappling for any version of the album, whether it's the TIDAL-released version that contained two of the same record or the unfinished live rip from the Yeezy Season 3 debut. The album has reportedly already been pirated over 500,000 times already, according to Torrent Freak. The fact that Kanye refuses to make it available on anywhere except TIDAL obviously adds to this issue.
Nonetheless, an inside source is now contradicting Ye's recent twitter rant where he vowed to never sell the album at all, sorta. Speaking anonymously to the New York Times, a source close to Kanye says that there is a plan "in the works," which includes "talk of a deluxe physical edition." This "plan" also seems to refer to placing The Life of Pablo on other streaming services such as Apple and Spotify. The source could not provide timeline, though.
We'll update you should any more details on physical copies of TLOP arrive.
