Melinda Doolittle’s Album “Coming Back to You” Now Available on Amazon

2nd Update:   The album is now unavailable.   Whoever made this mistake really screwed Melinda over.   Those songs are out there now, and there’s no getting them back…

UPDATE: Tyson from Melinda’s street team just posted in comments that the record company indeed made a mistake, although the album is still available for purchase (7:30 pm ET) at this time.

How the eff does a record label release an album by mistake? That’s some pretty bush league stuff going on right there, if you ask me.

I would imagine that buying the album today puts your purchase in the “street violations” category, so it won’t count for Melinda’s first week sales. If you’re a fan who cares about Soundscan numbers and Billboard positions, you are probably going to want to wait until the album is officially released to buy it.

Now I’m completely confused.

Melinda Doolittle’s album Coming Back to You is supposed to drop in January ’09.   Except, it’s available NOW on Amazon for $8.99.

Get it from Amazon:

I’m listening to it right now.

ETA: I just took a listen, and this entire record is super old-school.   Peeps who loved Melinda on Idol will not be disappointed.   This disc was recorded the old fashioned way, with Melinda’s clear, unprocessed vocals mixed front and center.   She’ll get zero radio play, but I expect lots of good reviews. This record, a retro soul, jazz and blues fest is a keeper.

Weird!   Not the album.   It sounds wonderful.   But the fact that it suddenly became available on Amazon 2 months before it’s supposed to drop.
