So what's the deal? Well, according to word straight from Badu's camp: Though there's no release date currently schedule, Badu, even on the road, is in the process of mixing the record--meaning she's a whole lot closer to completing it than Billboard indicated.
So when can we expect the disc? Perhaps as soon as the end of the year, says BaduWorld co-manager Paul Levatino.
But, then again, this is the notoriously free-of-time-constraints Badu we're talking about, so who knows? Either way, we're closer--and that's good news, for sure.
