"Exit" release in Asia and Australia postponed to October

Last week, we learned from this interview that Darin's sixth studio album "Exit" would have been released in Asia and Australia today, June 30th 2015. However, the album didn't appear on the iTunes store, so Darin Worldwide contacted Sony and this is what they replied to us:

"There has been a change in timeline for the album release. It is now out on 15 July instead." It's still unclear if the album will be available in a new version, with "Mamma Mia" and "So Yours" being included. We will keep you updated about that.

EDIT: The new release date is set in October.

Thereby, the music video will include many pictures of the city’s traffic and buildings. We also learned that parts of the video will be filmed in Stockholm. As we already know from Darin’s Instagram, the video will also show pictures from a rooftop and Darin walking in the streets of Singapore. 
During our talk with Darin, he told us that although it is the last day of shooting, they are far from done. “We will work until 8 in the morning. It’s just getting started.” Darin also added that the video will show the fast traffic and the lights in accordance to the uptempo parts of the song, and they will use a green screen to give the vision of Darin standing in the middle of the str…
