Drake Pushes Back "Take Care" Release Date

Last week the former Degrassi star announced last week that he's pushing back the release date of his sophomore full-EP release, Take Care from October 24th to November 15th.
The new date for Take Care is November 15th, 2011. I managed to create this album in my hometown of Toronto and the thoughts and stories I wanted to get across just became so clear. It truly felt like when I was here 3 years ago making So Far Gone. So I have completed 19 songs (17 on physical and 2 on bonus), and have run into a roadblock of clearing 3 samples in time to make the October 24th date. My options were to take the songs off and make the birthday release happen, or to take an extra couple weeks to get the paper work right and give you the album they way I NEED you to hear it. The choice was clear as day for me. November 15th you will get Take Care the exact way I created it with no trimmings. This music means too much to me to get attached to dates and I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together. Club Paradise Tour will also be moved to when students are back from the Christmas/New Year break so that I can get to more schools. New dates will be released in the next week...see you all soon.
The Jewish artist has had a busy month, prepping for the release of this much anticipated album, his Las Vegas birthday party in which he hopes Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist Kat Dennings attends, and his debut appearance as Saturday Night Live's musical guest. I'm not sure how he does it when he's preoccupied with a different woman every night, but according to his interview in ELLE magazine it's either True Blood or sexual climax for Drake's after-performance ritual.
When you’re on the road and moving city to city, when someone isn’t there at the end of the night, you feel empty. The 15 or 20 seconds after a man reaches his climax is the realest moment he’ll ever have in his life. And if you happen to be with somebody that isn’t someone you want to converse with, you start feeling like, I wish I was just here watching True Blood by myself.
I say, why not both?
