--- Annie's Don't Stop will only be released early next year. From Annie's MySpace blog:
The album will not be out until beginning of next year.Well..I feel really bad about this,I know you..ve been waiting for this for long,and it was suppose to be out this month. Hm..what can I say,I..m a typical scandinavian perfectionist, and have had these other songs that I thought were just too good too not be on the album so I put my foot down and made my label put the record back to next year...I promise its going to be worth the wait! Its the prerogative of every woman to be late!' So...I..m actually back in studio.Been working with Paul Epworth on a couple of songs,and I think it..s gonne be really good!!!!! So I..m working really really hard to make the best album there is.-)--- Saint Etienne's London Conversations has also been delayed. It is now set for a January 2009 release.
