How many chances do you give a store? If they screw up once you can forgive them right? They surely wouldn't do it again. Well maybe we should be asking that question to Halsey. She released her debut 2015 LP, Badlands, in collaboration with Urban Outfitters, but somehow there was a screw up and the clothing outlet ended up shipping out a bunch of copies weeks early and selling the album in stores three days before release. She was angry at the time Tweeting at the retailer, "What kind of copan are you?"
Well it seems like Halsey got over the incident and now two years later has once again teamed up with the company. We expect she thought things would go differently this time, but she was wrong. Her new album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, is due out this Friday, but if you simply can't wait to get your hands on a copy, guess where you should head…
That's right, Urban Outfitters is already selling the vinyl version of Halsey's new record. So in good news if you're a Halsey fan, you can already go and get your own copy of Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. In bad news the clothing outlet can clearly not be trusted to release things when they are supposed to. But in the best news, now we will be getting a week's worth of fashion jokes about Urban Outfitters actually being ahead of the trend for once… sorry, twice.
