Help Me Download this Album England Doesn't Want Me To Have

I would like to buy and download a specific album (with no scheduled or rumored or hinted at American release date) from any reputable English purveyor of music. Yet my lack of a UK mailing address and/or UK payment method seems to block me from doing so. Is there any legal way I can purchase this music digitally and download it to my American desktop?

I would rather not buy the imported physical media CD from US purveyors of music for 4x more than I think I would pay for just the digital files, or pay 2.5x for a disk+shipping+a wait of "at least 45 days" especially since I do not think the artist would be seeing any of the extra money I'd be spending.
I will suck it up if I absolutely can not get the music legally in my preferred manner, but I'll be a pain in the neck to live with, and no one wants that.
