The Snowden of speakers
Amazon usually provides 30-second previews of albums on its website, allowing users to preview tracks before committing to purchasing them.
But with Lady Gaga's upcoming album Joanne, previews of this hotly-anticipated album have been disabled.
Echo preview slip
It would appear as though someone at Amazon had forgotten to disable them when it came to the company's voice-activated Echo speaker, since users were able to request and then hear snippets of the new album.
The BBC has reported that the incident was limited to the US, where the Echo speaker has been available for a couple of years now.
If you're looking forward to hearing clips from the new album, the loophole has unfortunately now been closed, but the BBC has a pretty exhaustive rundown of each of the tracks.
