Confusion reigns as a multitude of speculative release dates for Seal's third album
come from as many sources.
Friends of FLP with contacts in music distribution channels began contacting this
site in early August, reporting that Warner were to ship Seal's third album, entitled
'Human Beings', on October 13th. At this time the Warner Bros. web site had release
dates running up to August 25th, and with no response from their rep's email address
there was no verification of this date.
Shortly afterward, there came the not-so surprising news of a backward step in release
information. Now music magazines in the States were going to press with a release
in October/November. Sounds iffy to me...
Other fans have contact me with details from various music news organs, informing me of
reported release dates of 29th September and 9th October, with many other publications
reporting that 'October' seems to be the likely month. Now we have a report of Rolling
Stone magazine stating that a November release is the latest.
All this information, where ever the music press appears to have gotten its details from,
seems to be a moot point. At publication, Warner's pitiful web site now has new releases
running up 'til October 20th with no mention of Seal to be seen.
For those who appreciate Seal's music, the best option is that of the now familiar
wait-and-see tactic. We did it for the second Seal album, so we'll do it again. However,
unlike the vigil for the second album, more people have access to the internet where they're
assualted by a myriad of false release dates and other rumours. It can sure try the patience at
One thing is for sure. When we have hard details regarding the release date, the Future
Love Paradise web site will be sure to let you know. Heck, you'll have a hard to time
shutting me up!
