Although the release date says August 30th, you can download it now... providing you're in the USA. That's right - no iTunes loving for us non-Americans yet again. Whether they'll put it up internationally on the 30th is anyone's guess (and I doubt it), but for now you can choose the US store and listen to the sample clips.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd love this on a real, actual CD. Remember them? They were like iTunes, but anyone could buy them...

Thanks to Jake and the_rapture!
