I am very excited for the Big Fish cast album. I know it's being released tomorrow, but I have a question.

Will it be released digitally tonight at midnight? Or later during the day? How does this work?

Thanks!

Digital albums are most always released on Tuesdays. iTunes updates their store at 12 eastern time, so by 9pm on the west coast you can usually beging to download the new releases :)

Big Fish is technically being released on iTunes tomorrow, but depending on your time zone (or if the direct iTunes link is available) you can download it a bit later tonight. It's never the same, but when I buy albums on iTunes, sometimes they're available sometime after 10:30 in my time zone.

I'm pretty excited for Big Fish too. They're usually up at 9 on the west coast. Should be any minute now.

It's a little after 6 AM on the East Coast and still nothing on iTunes.

EDIT: Just saw this.

Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

So I'm not crazy, it is in fact, not on iTunes at the moment? I can't find it and I have been trying on and off since 1AM on the East Coast.

I sent an e-mail to Broadway Records and they are claiming that it's iTunes that is running behind. They are "hoping it will be up today but can't guarantee it."

It can't be an iTunes problem. Sh-K-Boom, and others, never have a problem with getting things out when they say they will. It's a Broadway Records problem-- they had issues with getting Laura Benanti's CD out digitally too.

I seem to remember Matilda being late too, but it was late going up digitally on Amazon, not iTunes.

Glad I'm not crazy! First person to find it, post a direct link!

They posted this "update" on facebook still blaming iTunes.

"We have 4 releases coming out now on iTunes (Big Fish, Samson and Delilah and Volume 1 and 2 of From Broadway With Love). Please note that iTunes is running behind on posting our new releases so it could be up to a few days before all 4 of these are live. Thank you for your patience and your support of our albums."

Samson and Delilah is on iTunes, but when you click on it, only the digital booklet is popping up. So I guess Broadway Records is trying slowly...

This is almost more infuriating than it just not being there.

Yeah, it's posting slowly, I will give them at least another hour for the entire album.

Is anyone getting anything other than the Digital Booklet?

I'm a pessimist. I think we should start taking bets on whether it will actually ever be released.
