Last month Aristokrat Records sent out a press release announcing that the debut album from LeriQ titled The Lost Soundswould have its release date pushed back from June 30th to sometime in August. No explanation was given at the time, but now one of the reasons for the delay has just been revealed.

I spoke to RCA Label Head Louise Pillay about the deal and their plans to promote LeriQ outside of West Africa and I received this response;


“Sony Music Entertainment Africa are very excited about the project and we’ll be rolling out LeriQ’s debut album to all our digital partners and pushing the album to all our media partners across the continent.”
