Longtime overdue: I reported a month or so back that the American Princes new album, "Other People," will be out on Feb. 19. It's been pushed to April 15.

A press release from Yep Roc jarred my memory. Here's an excerpt:

American Princes - now a five piece with the addition of keyboardist/guitarist Will Boyd - recorded Other People in New York City at The Fireplace Studio with producer Chuck Brody (Yoko Ono, Wu-Tang Clan, Peter Bjorn and John). "We wanted to include a bunch of weird, post-modern hooks, which made working with a predominantly hip-hop producer all the more enticing," explains singer-guitarist Slade. Other People is comprised of 11 new tracks and include the songs "Watch As They Go" and "Real Love" which highlights the dichotomy of Collins Kilgore's exterior story telling and Slade's visceral laments. "A few friends have said it's our 80's record, but it's probably more Tears For Fears or Tom Petty than New Order." Slade elaborates, "Ultimately, our goal with this record was to create something bigger and more ambitious than anything we'd done prior."

Mark your calendar: The Princes play White Water on March 8 with J. Roddy Walston and the Business.
