Man, this has to be setting some sort of record. (Pun intended.)
After several years of announcing a debut album, only to postpone said debut and release an EP instead, synth-pop chanteuse Sky Ferreira has actually managed to surprise us by moving her elusive release date forward a few months.
The last we heard over the summer, the album formerly titled I’m Not Alright had been changed to I Will, and had been put off yet again to 2014, with a new hang-in-there-fans-I-promise-it’s-coming EP scheduled to release in September. This week, Ferreira has announced the album title is changing again—this time, it’s Night Time, My Time—only this time, we’re being given a solid release date of October 29. (This year, not next.)
Seriously, with this much flip-flopping, this girl should run for office. She’d fit right in.
Tongue out of cheek for a moment—Ferreira actually demonstrates some talent, which is perhaps why we’ve put up with so many switched up album titles and postponements over the past months and even years. She’s given the public just enough to show us that she may actually have something good to offer. Perhaps once this promised debut actually hits, there will be less in the way of fabricated suspense, and more in the way of actual substance, to carry her career forward.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the promised EP, Ferreira’s third, is still coming: You’re Not the One is scheduled to drop next Tuesday.
