Jonas Kaufmann warns fans against buying his new album

From his Facebook page:

Please don’t let yourselves be deceived by the Decca release, Jonas Kaufmann—The Age of Puccini. This compilation contains only three Puccini arias…The “real” Puccini album which I recorded with Antonio Pappano in Rome in Autumn last year is titled Nessun dorma and will be released on Sony in the middle of September.

Kaufmann and Decca parted company two years ago, according to WQXR. Reminds me of E.M.I. releasing a “Greatest Hits” of their earlier Radiohead catalogue, to cash in on Radiohead’s independent release of In Rainbows.
