Craig David threatens to leak his album
Craig David has threatened to leak his album on SoundCloud.
The 34-year-old MC is hoping to release his sixth studio record next year but insisted he'll have no qualms about posting the tracks online for free "if it starts to get long" and he's not able to release the music properly.
He said: "I'm sitting in front of my computer now and I'm seeing lists of songs and songs and songs. Come 2016, if it starts to get long, I'll just put them all up on SoundCloud."
However, the '7 Days' hitmaker isn't expecting to fall out with his label and is planning to release the LP - following up 2010's 'Signed Sealed Delivered' - at the beginning of 2016.
He explained: "I'm not going to be the guy who says it because I've had so many fans say, 'You told me 2013 and it's still not here!' Even I thought it was coming out then. 2016, though, the album - it's called 'Following My Intuition' - it'll definitely be dropping and hopefully the early side of the year as well. I'm very thankful and glad to see such love come at this point in my career."
David - who recently unveiled new track 'When The Bassline Drops' on which he collaborated with Big Narstie - teased he has worked with a slew of other artists on the record including Diplo and Chase & Status.
He told Complex magazine: "There's Kaytranada as well, who I did some wicked stuff with out in Canada. He's about to drop his project which is going to be fire, because he's still on that futuristic R&B thing and he's taken it electronic. Working with him was dope. Diplo too; we've actually got a few things coming up. That's going to be big. Oh, and GoldLink. He's got his new record dropping soon, but we have a few bits dropping together next year... Who am I forgetting? Oh! I've also done some stuff with Chase & Status. Pure flames, man."
