Double negatives in English are puzzling.
We're not making an album right now. We just have an amount of songs, equivalent to an album's worth, that we've recorded/are recording.
Why? The album is dead. Long live the single.

Oh what the? the single is dead too?
Rolling stone, same article:
Digital album sales are down 11.7 percent for the year, and à la carte downloads are down another 12.8 percent according to Billboard. Illegal downloading has no doubt eroded much of those digital sales, but it’s the emergence of legal streaming sites like Spotify and Pandora that has also chipped away at overall sales. Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" had 544,000 digital sales this week partly because the track isn'tavailable on Spotify, forcing fans to download the song (or watch it on YouTube, where it has already accrued 46 million views).
Do humans want new music? My guess is yes.
Will they pay for it?.
When they feel like it.
You heard it here first.
All sales are voluntary.
Meanwhile, we can't spend too much time worrying about the state of the disrupted market.
We have new songs to record!
just don't call it an album :-)
