According to her interview with Australia’s Herald Sun, Iggy Azalea’s debut album, The New Classic, has been pushed back from October 2013 to March 2014. ”The official date? Fucked if I know!” Azalea admitted in the interview. ”It’s done, it’s so depressing to say this but it’s the beginning of March, it’s so far away but I just have to accept that.”
She would continue, stating “It was supposed to be October but obviously I’m going on tour with Beyonce and they said I’m not allowed to put an album out while I’m on tour because I’ll be trapped in Australia and I won’t be able to do any TV appearances and I thought that’s fair enough, that’s three weeks and then they said ‘You can’t put an album out around Christmas time, that’s a bad time’ and I said ‘What about January?’ ‘Well nobody gets back off holidays and then it’s the Brit Awards, you can’t release an album, it’s terrible for marketing’ which brings me to February. The marketing team gets to control me unfortunately, I don’t get to control that.”
Iggy Azalea will be on the Australian leg of Beyonce The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour on which begins on October 22 and stretches for 14 dates until November 9.
