New Mos Def album released on t-shirt


Well this is exciting. Mos Def’s new album, ‘The Ecstatic’ will be released as a t-shirt. In the first of what music and fashion company Invisible DJ hope will be a long line of releases in this format (dubbed Music Tee), the t-shirts will have the album’s artwork on the front, its tracklist on the back and a code to download the music printed on the label.

Santigold and Miike Snow are also apparently planning to release their new albums as Music Tees. Who said physical media was dead?

As previously reported, Asda are launching a line of t-shirts with song lyrics printed on them which will also allow the wearer (or at least the buyer) to download the song in question for free.
