Originally set to be delivered on April 29th, De La Soul announced that they had to push back and the Anonymous Nobody until later this summer. This delay was because the band needed permission to feature their collaborations on the album from labels:

De La Soul 1“Playing the part of the label; it has been a learning experience for us. Of course we want you guys; the funders, the supporters to get this project first, but we also want the world to have it and in that, we had to find a distribution deal. We had to find someone who can get this project to you and everyone else around the world. So finally, we’ve partnered with Kobalt music, and they’re going do an excellent job at making sure this De La album gets the exposure and is everywhere for everyone to purchase it.”
