First time, last time, no time

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with streaming music. At first I hated it because I wanted to be more in control of… well, everything. And then I loved it because I wouldn’t have been able to afford to listen to 100 albums in a year if I had to purchase every single one. Plus, I would have had to buy Drake’s album and that would not have made me very happy.

Now I’m in a neutral place because for the most part I’ve let go of controlling my music, and I’m happy to just stream as and when I want. But I am a bit confused. I wanted to listen to Kelsea Ballerini’s effort again after she was nominated for a Grammy, but found this:

The album that kicked off my Album Adventure more than a year ago, and remained in my top five right through to the end of 2016, is now not available to listen to. It’s on pre-release despite actually being out since 2015 but now only the singles are available.

This is the stuff that makes no sense to me.
