Following her powerhouse performance at this year’s Coachella, Azealia Banks has announced via Twitter that the release of 1991 has been pushed back to a later date.

“For all you asking, ‘1991’ is getting delayed.. AGAIN,” Banks tweeted. “I just switched management.. Literally like three days ago, and have a whole new set of resources to take advantage of. We’re gonna vamp this up and make it official.. No more ghetto mixes and closet recording.. I have a budget now!”

It has been confirmed that Banks has hired Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter, CEO of Atom Factory.

In the meantime, she’s graced listeners with a 16-track mixtape called Before the Expensive Taste. You can download the fan-made compilation here, and stay tuned for the new release date of 1991. —Stephanie Long
