 "Attention everyone, especially any media I have interviewed with regarding the upcoming record...effective immediately, in honor of the victims and their families in the Connecticut tragedy, I have changed my upcoming album title to 'Need You Now'. Any reference to the previous album title needs to be removed where possible. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause...but I'm certain everyone will understand how important it is to make reference as much as possible to the only true hope we can have at all times and as little reference to anything otherwise. Peace to you."
