Some people accept the demise of the physical album as an inevitability, others embrace it. Like Mos Def: He’s releasing his latest album, The Ecstatic, as a T-shirt. How does that work? The T-shirt has The Ecstatic Killer of Sheep-interpolating cover art printed on the front, song titles on the back, and a download code for the album on the hang tag.

While some fans were disappointed by his last couple of showings (True Magic 2007, The New Danger 2004), The Ecstatic is getting good reviews. Pitchfork gives it an 8.0. We’re excited to see the man returning to his musical roots and continue to keep an eye on innovative music distribution tactics in the age of the MP3.
