There is also the whole deal with Embargos not being that strict on CD releases these days. As soon as we get the stock we sell it. Vital's release date was meant to be Friday the 12th here.
Here in our iTunes store it is still expected Friday, which would be in about 13 and a half hour. Dunno if it stays at that. I, sure as everything ever was, hope so it remains. So the first thing I do after midnight is looking if it is available.
Anyway, I am kinda suprised how secretive they, or Universal, are about this record. Not that there still is no leak, good thing I might add, and then that there are no clips to listen so close to its release, even though they were leaked a few weeks ago. ;)
