https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/STYLE-471 was created back in 2015, but the ongoing coronavirus crisis has created a situation for which I believe it needs to be revived. At least two new albums scheduled to be released this year have been delayed due to the crisis, and at least one was available for preorder before it was delayed. I’m talking specifically about this album:
The way situations like these have been dealt with in the past is the release date just gets updated when the album is eventually released; this is not possible in this case. Jon Bon Jovi has written a new song inspired by the COVID-19 crisis, and he stated in a recent interview he wants to include it on the album’s eventual release, so the album as it was originally offered has effectively been cancelled. At present, we do not have a “cancelled” release status, so this release will either have to remain stuck as “official” or its status removed altogether.
I know it seems silly/redundant of me to make a thread about this, but this is not the first time an issue like this has come up. I primarily want to drum up support for the aforementioned JIRA ticket, but I would also like to know some further suggestions/ideas about cases like these.
