The British songwriter Jai Paul released his debut album Leak 04-13 (Bait Ones) via XL Recordings. The album was leaked in April 2013 via Bandcamp. An unknown user leaked his demos without his permission. Then he tweeted that:
To confirm: demos on bandcamp were not uploaded by me, this is not my debut album. Please don’t buy. Statement to follow later. Thanks, Ja
