Shakira's She-Wolf album is out today in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Holland, and Switzerland.
We here in the UK, along with the rest of Europe, and Latin America have to wait till Monday (which is tough, but an improvement on previous occasions, when the UK release was delayed by months and I had to order things from abroad, which wouldn't work now, as the post is deteriorating from occasional walk-outs to a proper strike). So I'll be at HMV first thing Monday morning ...
Visibility and airplay here in the UK are(again) quite poor, but I hope the release is at least making a nice splash in the rest of the world. All news on official website, or follow her tweet feed.
The website also includes a touching tribute to Argentinian singer Mercedes Sosa, who passed away last week. Shakira recorded with her the song "La Maza" which was featured on Sosa's CD "Cantora" and performed live with her last year.
