Surprise! Rihanna's new album ANTi is out... and it's free

The album is is posted for free after it leaked online.

After months (and months) of teasing, Rihanna has finally released her ANTi album... and it's free! Well, for a while anyway.

The superstar's eighth studio album was released by surprise late on Wednesday (January 27), after the collection accidentally leaked on streaming service TIDAL earlier in the day.

UPDATE: in addition to its free release on TIDAL, ANTi is now available to purchase on iTunes, making it eligible for the Official Albums Chart, though copies that were previously downloaded for free will not count. The album will also be issued on physical CD on February 5.

ANTi will stream exclusively for a week on TIDAL, which is also has a limited number of free download codes available. The codes were offered as a "gift" from Rihanna and Samsung and they come with a 60-day free TIDAL trial

ANTi's release follows the unveiling of its lead single Work earlier in the day

ANTi serves as Rihanna's eighth studio album and follows 2012's chart-topping album Unapologetic. Click here to see where all of her singles and albums have charted in the UK
