Two weeks ago, Vanessa Carlton revealed the final of ten songs to be included on her new album, Liberman. Her 5th album has been in the works for a couple of years now, and she confirmed that the album is fully mastered and ready for release. Unfortunately, Vanessa also admitted that the album would not be out as soon as originally planned. She told fans she had a good reason for the delay, but could not divulge more info at the time.
I have a good reason for album delay. Ill be able to give ya more info in about 4 weeks. Thanks for the patience.

Today Vanessa has finally announced the reason for the album delay – and it’s good news: She’s expecting a baby!

She told fans on Facebook:
I can now reveal the reason as to why Liberman will not be released until next summer. See the picture below. No, those aren’t a bunch of croissants. We’re expecting a baby. It’s healthy and moving around like a champ. I’m bummed to delay the album because it’s so special to me and the perfect combination of England and Tennessee. When I put the record on it feels like medicine. I hope it does the same for you…in due time!
Thanks for sticking with me. John, Victor and I are over the moon.
Vanessa married her husband, John McCauley, just last December. In fall 2013 Vanessa was pregnant for the first time, but she lost the baby due to a dangerous ectopic pregnancy. It is wonderful to see her pregnant again with a healthy baby. Congratulations to the newlywed couple! Starting a family will be worth the brief album delay.
Vanessa’s baby will be due later this year, and the album Liberman should be out by next summer. You can read all about the new record and check out the list of confirmed tracks, and keep coming back for more news about Vanessa Carlton.
