Due for delivery this November (and then December), Monica has confirmed that her eagerly awaited ‘New Life’ album has been delayed once again and is set to be completely re-worked.
Full story after the jump…
Writing on Twitter, the R&B maestra said:
I wanna thank u for your love, dedication & support.. RCA & I are restructuring the entire plan for the album & the entire movement.
I refuse to not give the music that those of you who have supported me deserve, creative things take time because they cant be planned
All is STILL IN MOTION…I Love u guys.. NEW LIFE coming soon, pls continue to request Until It’s Gone at radio & video outlets..Be Blessed
In an industry where many an album should never have seen the light of day, there, too, exists projects which are deserving of the right set-up. This being one of them.
Beyond Monica being an industry rarity (see: longevity, undeniable talent, and the like), it was clear that the album was being almost-too-overtly geared towards the annual “Holiday sales” rush. A point drilled home when listening to its material thus far. For, though solid, both lead singles ‘Anything to Find You’ and ‘Until It’s Gone’ struggle to meet the level of stellar established by even the album cuts on ‘Still Standing’.
Fortunately for Ms. Brown, that strong back catalogue, birthed a strong fanbase, many of who will excitedly await her new delivery until it arrives. Us included.
