Just because Bey’s name is on the record doesn’t mean she should hog all the glory, right? Canadian punk bands have to eat as well.
The mix-up was acknowledged by Columbia Records, who issued this statement:
Due to human error at the Celebrate Records plant in Germany, which Sony uses to manufacture vinyl, a small amount of the European run of the Beyoncé “Lemonade” vinyl included music from Canadian punk band, ZEX, on Side A. Beyoncé and ZEX were not aware of or responsible for the mispress. Fans who purchased the vinyl will be refunded and given a replacement copy. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
Unsurprisingly, ZEX is enjoying the enjoying the attention.
Felling lucky? You can order Lemonade from us.
