Prior to its cancellation, Montgomery had released the album's lead single, This Isn't Heaven, to iTunes and other digital stores. Furthermore, he had unveiled several demos and instrumentals, via the SoundCloud service and YouTube.
Background & RecordingEdit
Shortly after the release of his debut instrumental album, "Heading Out", in February 2012 Montgomery announced that he was writing a vocal album, to be released that year. He recorded the first song for the record with friend & producer Michael Horner, in late March 2012; the song, entitled "This Isn't Heaven", was uploaded to YouTube the following month. Throughout April and May 2012, Montgomery recorded several demos, and released the mixtape "Divine" to Soundcloud, containing some of these rough tracks.
Release & CancellationEdit
On 12th June 2012, Montgomery released a remix of "This Isn't Heaven" to iTunes and other digital stores. However, on 7th July 2012, the album - which was due to be released in November - was cancelled; Montgomery cited "creative confinement" as one reason, going on to say that the album was "...announced but one I've barely started to record". It was confirmed on October 6th, 2012, that "This Isn't Heaven" will be removed from stores in late 2012.
