...Matador Records is 'releasing' the album early through Buy Early Get Now. Basically, the deal is, you pre-order the album, and get password-only access to a live stream, which you can listen to until the August 21 official release (though I'm unsure if it's only the one listen or unlimited until the album is out), plus some exclusive B-sides. Also, a ~ $19.00 pre-order deal includes a bunch of nice bonuses for the die-hard:

The "Challengers" Buy Early Get Now is available in two different versions. The first, and best, is The Executive Edition, but we're also offering a stripped down Standard Version. This is what you get with The Executive Edition:

You Get It All + an exclusive, limited edition Box Set

*Full Album Stream
Listen to all of Challengers months ahead of release

*The Challengers Box-Set
A very limited edition Treasury of New Pornography available only to Executive members. Includes three bonus discs, designed in a deluxe box set package.
Disc One: B-Sides, Demos and Alternate Mixes
Disc Two: The New Pornographers "Live From The Future"
Disc Three: Videos, photos and artwork
(note: you will download all of this material digitally as part of Buy Early Get Now, so some-assembly is required as some of these recordings haven't even happened yet.)

*Advance notice and exclusive tickey buy links for upcoming New Pornographers tours

*Basically, you Get It All
Don't you hate it when bonus tracks are split up over tons of releases? A store exclusive bonus track here, a UK only single there, if you want to hear everything you'd have to buy the record twenty times from twenty different places. Not anymore. With the Executive Edition ALL content associated with Challengers will be available to Executive members.

I'm confused

I tried to reach the buy now site but couldn't figure out how to register. Also, do I actually have to physically visit the local store to get the code to access the stream? That's a bit of a pain. I'd love to buy the album and extras but am not sure how to do it easily. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

As far as I can tell (I haven't actually done it, the single I heard didn't quite leave me 'itching'), you can purchase it online from sites like insound.com or Matador's site. From BEGN:

HOW TO BUY EARLY GET NOW

1. choose your store from the map below
2. visit your store (in person or online) and place your order
3. you will get a password that you use to log in at upper right
4. get an instant stream and let the goodies flow in!

I know this pre-order incentive service has been offered in the past for other (Matador only?) albums, I wonder how it pays off, both to the fans and the label. Anyone tried it?
