By now you've likely heard all about how Kanye West's The Life of Pablo will always be a Tidal exclusive. When the album first dropped, West mentioned on Twitter that he would "fix" the song "Wolves." To make sure users who flocked to the service for the album are able to stream the new version, Tidal is extending its free trial for another 30 days. The service sent out an email to temporary users today, explaining that the updated song and a new track "Fade" were added to Pablo. However, "Fade" was already available as a part of the initial release.

This makes the second revision to the album in recent days as tweaks to "Famous" and the addition of "Frank's Track" (originally part of "Wolves) were added as well. While the practice is unusual, it's not too much of a surprise, especially for West who's known for being a bit of a perfectionist. You will need to log in and re-activate your account or the extended trial will end after 14 days. Of course, this also means that you'll be able to stream those Jay Z albums that aren't available anywhere else as of this week.
