My apologies for the sudden announcement. I had hoped that we could overcome some of the hurdles in time due to the exceptional skill of the individuals working on this project, but unfortunately, it really just comes down to having enough time to do all of the necessary work. While it is feasible that this compilation could be released tomorrow, it would require an extremely rushed mastering process that would be detrimental to the quality of the product. It was difficult to make this decision, but ultimately, I came to the conclusion that releasing a mediocre compilation (compared to what it could be) would be more damaging than waiting a week to officially release it. Additionally, this will allow me more time to prepare a good press release and to distribute it more widely; this will include giving me time to discuss releasing this with more labels.
Here's a more succinct version.
To give this project the time it needs to really succeed, The Sun Will Rise will be released on April 15th, not April 8th.
I promise that your patience will be rewarded.
