That comment of not having planned this album sounds really odd.
Yes, from all that writing there must be 12 all new songs to put on album after such a long time after previous album.
Well, one reason to all this could be the reason that he is such a perfectionist. But that perfectionism is strange thing when you release hasty remakes and play around with home studio and not rely on real musicians all the time. There is a bit of conflict in this way of thinking.
Also, why not release some of the songs he makes every week in home studio just as a online tracks for a fans?
There must be hundreds if not thousands unreleased songs in his archives which will be never released?

But he didn't release an album for the last six years - apart from the La Passione remake - and he often boasted about writing songs each day and having the problem that he has too much material and the record companies wouldn't accept him releasing two albums a year and so on. So why wasn't he - at least - planning a new record?
