    Tuesday Mar 17 | Los Angeles Times

    Kendrick Lamar's new album, "To Pimp a Butterfly," arrived Sunday night, a week before its scheduled release date on March 23.

On Sunday night, Lamar's album went live on streaming platforms Spotify and Google Play, and a clean version became available for purchase on the iTunes Store.
