I think that it was a typo and should have been 29 January and not 9 Jan.

The release date is scheduled for 29 January but you have to remember 
that this is 24-hours behind us which is why you mention that the 
release date to Hardly Normal is 30 January - "our" time.


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought 
that tragedy is just around the corner.
