Bad news, human beings looking forward to listening to Azealia Banks’s debut album Broke With Expensive Taste this fall: you can’t. So says Idolator and so says Banks’ Twitter. While the record was originally set for a fall release, it’s been pushed to February 12, 2013. Earlier this year, Banks released the 1991 EP and the Fantasea mixtape, so it’s not like fans of the Harlem MC are at any loss for new material. Still, the delay of her anticipated new album must be at least a little disappointing.
But don’t worry: Swans’s The Seer is still coming out on August 28! Hooray! This was the unasked question that flooded everyone’s mind: “Hey, how is this Azealia Banks delay going to affect Swans?” Good news, it won’t! By now, it’s probably too late to delay the album, so Michael Gira and his mind-obliterating friends will be able to obliterate your mind next Tuesday. Phew! On her Twitter, Banks said that she has “ALOT of REALLY excitin ish happening in btwn!” She’s of course talking about listening to The Seer a ton. Who can blame her? I mean, it’s coming out August 28.
