So ScHoolboy Q's Blank Face LP is out today, and I noticed it only is available on the iTunes Store .. is this normal ? I was so excited to hear the album immediately after release, but I can't at this point !! 

PS: I'm sooooooo sad right now :'(

The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artists and their music label.

 

If the music is unavailable, the artist or their music label has likely decided to not make it available yet in Spotify. 

 

Delaying music is common nowadays, since they want to maximize album sales, which they feel increase if people are not capable of streaming it. When the sales window passes, they make it available for streaming.

 

Hopefully it will come later.

Depends of the artist or his / her music label.

 

Drake's new album came a week after release.

Adele's new one came 7 months later. (!)

 

Having said that, I searched for the album you want, and it's available!

 

Just follow this link:
