Latest Bon Iver album leaked by iTunes accidentally Earlier this week, the much-anticipated new album from Bon Iver leaked to P2P, warez and torrents sites, the latest in a very long line of leaks.
It appears that iTunes is to blame for the leak, however, with Apple apologizing for the mistake.

Instead of just adding the disc's first single "Calgary" to iTunes, an employee put the whole album online a la carte.

The album is supposed to go on sale June 21st.

Apple corrected the problem very quickly but hundreds had already downloaded the album.

In 2008, iTunes accidentally leaked the Raconteurs' Consolers of the Lonely Back and in 2009, the Norwegian version of the store leaked Kelly Clarkson's "All I Ever Wanted" one month early.

If I were working for a record label, I would pay extra shipping fees to be sure that Apple didn't get the package until a specific date and time.

...then again, if I had any say, the album would be in every digital store EXCEPT iTunes.
