He explains the delay and predicts (roughly) when it's coming out.

One of the highlights of this weekend’s We Can Survive concert was Pitbull’s energetic set. Which only whet his fans’ appetite even more for his oft-delayed next album, Climate Change. He told Radio.com that the album hasn’t come out yet, simply because he’s still working on it. He thinks it may see the light of day┬ánext year.

“As of right now, we’re looking at 2017, but you never know… album [release dates] always change. I’m a big believer that everything happens for a reason. Right now we’re working on two records in the thirteenth hour with very, very interesting features that will also be part of Climate Change.”

As everyone knows, Pitbull is from Miami, an area that (depending on who you ask) is one of the cities that will be most profoundly affected by climate change. Is there a message he’s trying to get across in his music? He says he knows that his fans aren’t looking to Pitbull┬árecords to learn about ecology. “If I just did an album about climate change, no one would listen to it. But since I put out albums like Global Warming, Globalization and now Climate Change, I let the public connect the dots.”
