So it's an hour past midnight local time here and even though the New Music section is promoting the release of the new Ariana Grande album, when I go to the album listing only the previously released tracks on it are available and the sub-heading is still 'Upcoming Album'; essentially the same as before midnight. This has happened a few times recently, and although the album is invariably available a few hours later, I can't really find if this is an issue with my account, if it's tied to the album releasing at midnight in a particular time zone any way to check that? Ariana's album was having a worldwide release when America ET hit midnight hence why you wouldn't be able to play the album through Apple Music. Big released albums have been doing this for the past couple of months Cardi B for example.
