Piksy has postponed the launch of his album Mtunda which was slated for August 31 as he is yet to complete the recording of some songs.
The artist said in an interview that the change has been a result of delays he has faced in completing “a few songs” which he is recording outside the country due to the tight schedules of his producers.
Piksy said: “Yes I am no longer launching my new album on the dates I announced earlier. Looking at the schedules of my producers, it will not be possible to complete all the recording work by then.”
According to Piksy, work on almost three songs he is recording abroad is yet to be finished. Locally he has worked with several producers, including BFB, Gaffar, Don Foxxy and Dominant 1.
The Uncle Short One hitmaker, who is currently riding on the popularity of his new single Umakwana which is also expected to form part of his third album, said at the moment he cannot speculate as to when the launch will take place.
“I am not sure when the recording will be through so I would rather not commit myself on the exact date. But I will do my best so that we get done with it as soon as possible. Apologies to all my fans who have been eagerly anticipating this album,” he said.
However, the Blantyre-based musician said he will still go ahead to hold a concert on the day at HS Winehouse.
This will be Piksy’s third album coming on the back his 2012 debut solo production Maso which was followed by Mthunzi three years later which helped cement his place as one of the country’s gifted artists of his generation.
Producer BFB said the understanding and creativity that Piksy showed during the course of the production of the album was exceptional.
“He is one of the most creative artists in the land. During production he is so hands-on because he always has an idea of how he wants his music to come up like. He is always full of ideas which are vital for a recording artist,” he said.
