Like his last 2 projects (a live recording and third studio album), he is doing an IndieGoGo campaign for pre-ordering and offering special perks per price tier, and people will get the album before it heads to the usual iTunes/etc. places.
It's too bad he's not bigger. I've stayed following him from his Idol days (this is when i still watched). His first album was okay, but the next two had tons of bops! He should have had the Carly Rae Jepson indie resurgence, at the least.
