“When it’s ready, when it’s ready. It don’t matter if Donald Trump say, ‘Put the album out,’” he explained. “...] But I guess the question you asked me is what will it take. When it’s finished. When it’s something that I’m pleased with because regardless the six billion people on planet Earth, even if I put something out and the whole six billion say it’s absolutely beautiful and I don’t feel OK with it, I’m the one that carries that. I have to be at a place where I’m pleased with the fering. So, it will come—it’s coming soon.”
