Caution - pre-ordering from prince.com

If you're interested in pre-ordering the "Originals" release or "The Beautiful Ones" book from the estate - a word of caution:

Their pre-order policy is to group all your items into one shipment. So, if you pre-order both of these items, with the physical audio release on June 19, 2019 and the book release on October 25, 2019, you'll end up with an order scheduled to ship on October 25, 2019. You'll wait four months for the audio release to arrive instead of getting it on or around the release date of June 19.

I contacted the store to ask about splitting the order up and paying shipping twice, as their policy is that pre-order sales are final. The best they could tell me was:

Thanks for contacting the Prince Official Store.

You could contact us closer to the first preorder date and see if we can split ship the order.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at any time.

If you pre-order these items, order them separately if you want to make sure you get the physical audio release in June.

To add to the negative feedback from ordering on Prince.com, you won't get the products on the release date, unless you pay expedited shipping. For items like these, I would just go to local record and book stores.
