iTunes early release

On September 2, 2007, iTunes begun selling "Pictures" in many of its locations, including the UK and Australian stores in error, a month before its official release date. Initially, it was unclear if it was in error. However, moderators on Melua's forums had deleted any posts relating to the discussion of the release, and the "tell a friend" link on the iTunes UK store stated the album would be available on September 29, suggesting that it should not have been available. Melua's official website also made no mention of an early iTunes release.

By September 3, 2007, the album was unavailable in the iTunes store with an error message stating the album would be available on 29 September. The album peaked at number 3 in the UK iTunes vocal-genre chart.
