Release delays

Varese Sarabande originally anounced that this album will be released on October 21, 2008. On October 9, 2008, the release was pushed back to November 4, 2008. As of October 21, 2008, the release date was pushed back again to December 9, 2008. On November 14, 2008, the release date was once again pushed back, but this time, by one week, to December 16, 2008. On November 21, the release date was pushed back yet a fifth time to another week to December 23, 2008. The reason for these delays are partially due to the Pushing Daisies team being so busy with the second season and partially due to Varese Sarabande trying to clear Kristin's involvement with Sony Classical.
