Alicia Keys has delayed the release of her next album, to give her more time to "create beautiful music for it."
Keys' new project, The Element of Freedom was scheduled to hit stores on World Aids Day (01Dec09), a decision she made to “bring forth awareness about the AIDS work”.
But the star has taken to her blog to tell fans they'll have to wait another two weeks.
She writes, "Luv (sic) having the freedom to create beautiful music, so I'm pushing the album back to DEC 15th (sic). So many more amazing songs!!!"
