JB Hi Fi are doing Hotspot vinyl LP with the signed print.

Much less likely to get damaged in transit than from the official store.

JB are no longer listing the 2 CD version of the album. They had it on the site a few weeks ago. Maybe not being released here after all. 😥

Maybe JB sold out of the 2CD edition on pre-orders.

Can fellow Aussie fans report if they happen to see/buy Hotspot at JB HiFi today (Thursday the 23rd).
If I remember either one or both Electric and Super appeared on the Thursday, a day before release.
Thank you.

JB HiFi Adelaide City have stock, but are unable to sell until tomorrow.
Damn, Neil must have put an embargo on it.

JB Hifi had my preorder ready on Wednesday morning but it's still being delivered.

Checked in store if they put the album on display early but nope.
Got the Stack magazine with an exclusive featurette though.
Maybe it's been posted before but I'll share.

What format did you get?
I got the LP wit the signed print from JB and it was dispatched today. I paid for express shipping so with a bit of luck it will arrive tomorrow. Be good to listen to the vinyl on my system.
I'm of course staying up to listen to it on Spotify in 1.5 hours.

Just the standard CD.
I've also ordered the Special Edition through JB, got an email today that it's also "awaiting carrier pick up".

JB is sending out the vinyl without the signed print. Apparently there has been a delay getting the prints so they'll be sent separately later.

My “express delivery” CD arrived 1pm from JB. Yay!

Couldn't find the cd anywhere in Perth today. So disappointed.

Thank goodness for spotify.

This is the first time I've heard their new album without having the physical product.

My vinyl arrived on Friday on time.
The delayed signed print is on it's way.
Very efficient JB.

First album since Fundamental that apart from the singles I did not listen to any snippets.
No tracks leaked so that was that.
