Amazon US just cancelled my CD pre-order. Still up at official site.
Amazon US cancelled mine as well. Just ordered from Amazon UK and am having them send it Global priority; we'll see if that works.

Yes, yes, must eat up logistical capacity for CD. 🙄
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Has that happened before?
Jealousy
It's alright
Well neither Jealousy nor It's alright are edits per se. They are complete reworkings, which was quite often the case back in the good old days.
Suburbia
Heart
Rent

Jealousy
HCYETBT Seriously
IWND this kind of thing
Yesterday when IWM
Flamboyant
Integral
The album version of Integral is much better than the single version.

So what you're saying is I'm being selfish for ordering a CD and having it sent UPS or FEDEX. I think, rather, I'm spending money into the economy during a time when people are losing their jobs because normal services are being scaled back. I somehow doubt me purchasing a CD from Amazon, which will then cross the Atlantic on a UPS or FEDEX flight which is happening whether the CD is on the flight or not, is going to impede humanitarian aid from reaching the US from the UK.

Yes. There’s a reason amazon stoped selling them, dummy. I’ll trust their logistic wisdom above yours.

easy easy. yes we get it, but somehow in times like this, its kind of nice the little moments of business as usual if you can still order a CD and get it to keep spirits up and realize the world isnt all over.

in any case I could use a new tune from them. it would be nice if they pushed the single out now to buy the digital version and get "new boy".
maybe even release more stuff and have the proceeds go towards relief.

As a logistician who uses FedEx and DHL daily, I can confirm according to our reps that its business as usual for them right now.

Your order cancellation is likely down to something else.
