A new day, a new Eurozone crisis. While the EU economy continues its long, slow, rumble down, Silvio Berlusconi has decided it would be best to hold off on releasing his fourth album, ‘True Love.’

How long is the delay, you ask? Will he wait until his country is back in the black? Or is he just going to delay until a verdict has been reached in the infamous Bunga Bunga case, a trial by which he faces charges for allegedly having sex with an underage prostitute? Nope. The album has reportedly been pushed all the way back to November 22nd.

Berlusconi has previously worked as a cruise ship singer as a young man and is known to have some aptitude for the double bass. He also penned AC Milan football club’s official anthem, and has reputedly performed his brand of Neapolitan Song for the likes of George W Bush, Vladimir Putin and Tony Blair.
