By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Samsun Demir tweets on Tarkan's 2010 albumTurkish music label DMC rep Samsun Demir's Twitter account has been busy again, with talk of the release date for Tarkan's highly anticipated 2010 album, while also revealing that Tarkan has split his 2010 album into two parts.

After Demir tweeted to a follower that Tarkan's 2010 album would be released between 12-15 July, he then went on to tweet an exact date, Monday, 12 July.

Moreover, the DMC rep went on to write that Tarkan would be splitting his album into two parts so as not to keep his fans waiting.

Having decided to release two EP style albums similar to his 2003 Dudu record, part one will be released on 12 July with six tracks and four remixes, while part two is scheduled for an end-of-year release.

Part one will contain "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike") and five new tracks.

Opening with a Tarkan Track?

Meanwhile, Tarkan's manager Uygar Ataş has tweeted on his own account the date of release, after having learnt it from Demir, but has also tweeted the words "Adımı Kalbime Yaz" [sic], which suggests it may be the proposed first video single off the 2010 summer EP or its title.

Celebrity correspondent for Haberturk, Oben Budak had mentioned this track when reviewing Tarkan's 2010 songs pre-release last May.

"[On] hearing the solely Tarkan penned song "Adımı Kalbine Yazdım" ("Wrote My Name in Your Heart") it made up my mind for me [in an instant]; this song reproaching a loved one will make listeners [want to] get drunk and cry!" Budak had written in his review.
