I don't know what is going on with Zavvi, but I just got charged for this.
Zavvi since last year sometimes have taken payment 2-3 weeks before release date but your order is not shipped until usual the Wed/Thur before release date

Release date is in 3 weeks time


Note
Arrow also sometimes supply stock to retailers a few weeks before their listed release date
If Zavvi have got early delivery of the stock you might see your order shipped next week or following week
