UPDATE: Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo is now streaming and can be heard on services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play. Hear it below.

EARLIER: Soon, anyone can listen to The Life of Pablo without a Tidal subscription.

Kanye West’s seventh studio album will be available on most streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play, at midnight on Friday, Def Jam told The New York Times. The label confirmed the news in a press release late Thursday night. The album is also available to download for $20 at It will also be a “a newly updated, remixed, and remastered version” of the record.

After the album’s release, West insisted TLoP would only be available on Tidal, never for sale anywhere, and definitely not as a CD.

Within the last week, a pair of TLoP songs have appeared on streaming services. “Famous” was released as the first single from the album. The acapella “I Love Kanye” followed suit and was also made available to stream Wednesday.

West has tinkered with the album since its release, publishing new versions of “Famous” and “Wolves” on Tidal. Def Jam said West “will release new updates, new versions, and new iterations of the album” in the coming months, according to NYT.
