Morgan Wallen Responds to ‘Dangerous’ Album Leak: “I’ll Be Damned If I’m Gonna Let Walmart Do The Leaking”

Morgan Wallen is not happy that his new album has been leaked ahead of its release.

He took to Instagram in a new video captioned, “If anyone’s gonna leak my music, it should be me. Links for leaks will be in my story shortly.”

Morgan then went on to say in the video, “Hey y’all. It’s been brought to my attention that some of my music — well, my album — has leaked at some Walmarts around the country. I don’t know how that’s possible, but it has. And all the sudden some of y’all are posting trying to spread the new music which I’m super thankful for. I’m glad you’re eager to do that. But man, I’ve been working on this album for three years and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna let Walmart do the leaking like that let. So just keep up with me on here, and I’m gonna start doing the leaking of the songs myself.”

Morgan also called out Walmart saying, “It’s kind of messed up, but I don’t shop at Walmart anyway. I also gave Target two extra songs, so if you’re gonna buy my album, go to Target, baby.” Those two bonus tracks are “This Side of a Dust Cloud” and “Bandaid on a Bullet Hole.”

Update: A spokesperson from Walmart gave this statement Rolling Stone, quote, “We are deeply apologetic to Morgan for this unfortunate situation.  We appreciate Morgan as an artist and understand his frustration and disappointment.

“We have protocols in place to help ensure new albums are not sold before the release date, yet in this instance his album made its way to the shelf in a handful of stores early.  We’re removing any albums on the shelves until the official release date.”
