Annie stops Don’t Stop until 2009, releases single

    Calling herself a "typical scandinavian perfectionist," Norwegian DJ/pop star Annie announced via her Myspace blog that she would be pushing back until next year the release of Don’t Stop, the long-awaited follow up to 2004’s excellent Anniemal.

    Annie writes, "[I] had these other songs that I thought were just too good too not be on the album so I put my foot down and made my label put the record back to next year…I promise its going to be worth the wait!"

    On the bright side, providing a little bit of Annie-drought relief, the singer will be releasing her cover of Stacy Q’s "Two of Hearts" as a single, out on 12" and CD the 27th of October on Island.
