Drake Delays Album
The Canadian’s second album, Take Care, has been pushed back…
Drake has delayed the release of his album, Take Care.
The LP, the follow-up to Thank Me Later, was due for release on 24 October, his 25th birthday. But the Miss Me star announced in a blog post that he is pushing back the date by three weeks in order to give him more time to clear samples used on three of the tracks.
Drake wrote: “So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album the way I NEED you to hear it.
“The choice was clear as day for me,” he continued. “November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together.”
Just a few weeks ago Drake wrote in a blog post that he was looking forward to the October release date and “wouldn’t miss it for the world”. "Feels like it's been so long. Is life moving so fast in this generation that when we desire something it begins to move in slow motion?”
