The rumors were strong but Camila Cabello hadn’t publicly commented about it yet. However, today it all got confirmed. Camila’s debut solo album “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving” is officially pushed back. Till when? Until “the top of 2018”. The album was supposed to come out this October, then industry sources pointed to a delay till November, and now that “Havana” is doing well and it is so different in sound than the possibly-to-be-axed first single “Crying in the Club”, Camila wants to record an album that has a more cohesive sound with it (more latin-flavoured that is), so she and her record label are thinking that early 2018 is now the best release time frame for the album. Sucks, right? But hey… if there are going more be more Havanas in the album, then so be it.
The delay news was confirmed in an interview Camila did for the “Official Charts” UK website published today. Read the album updates quotes below:
Has Havana’s success changed things for your debut album? It was originally supposed to be released this month…
"It’s made me want to write more songs and it’s showed me that I should trust my gut more. Havana has been the defiant song but I always thought it was important to put out music that feels authentic to me. Havana doing well feels like the universe’s way of saying, 'keep doing that, don’t be scared to take risks.'"
When can we expect the album then?
"I think it’ll come at the top of next year. You know, you only have one c chance to make a debut album and at this point I have so many songs I’m passionate about. You know those albums where they are clearly songs that aren’t as good as the singles. I want every song to be single-worthy.
"I can’t imagine releasing something that isn’t that. For example, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for Havana – I’m so proud of it and I want to feel that way about every song. I have a lot of songs I feel that way about already, but for the amount I want to have on that album, I want to feel that way about every song."
Are we talking 80% finished?
“I think that’s a good number.”
This delay means that we’ll definitely be getting a new single from Camila Cabello before “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving” album arrives early next year. For now, she’s focused on promoting “Havana” and release the music video for it in the coming weeks. We can't wait for that.
