A$AP Rocky feat. Florence Welch - 'I Come Apart' [Listen]
What do you do when your album leaks early? Get angry? Send cease and desist emails to torrent sites? Best thing to do is put out a deluxe-edition of the album and hope the pre-release downloaders head to the shops (or iTunes) to get that extra slice of aural delight from their favourite artist once it's released. Saying that, they'll probably just wait for that leak too. What a world.
One such artist going the deluxe route is A$AP Rocky with his debut album (proper) Long.Live.A$AP, which is set to be released with four extra tracks on January 15th. One of the tracks is 'I Come Apart', which features Florence Welch. "I knew about her from winning Grammys and stuff like that, but I’m not gonna sit here and lie—I wasn’t too in tune with the music, so when I found out she was fascinated with my style, that’s when the infatuation with her came. I just started doing research and I became a fan," says Rocky.

The problem being, though, that this one also went public, and on some rather shaky legal grounds at that. [read more]
