Back in January, Tinashe announced a series of world tour dates in support of her forthcoming sophomore album, Joyride. But on Tuesday, the R&B singer wrote on Facebook that she had decided to postpone the remainder of her performances in favor of finishing the follow-up to 2014’s Aquarius. “I will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May, and will be back on the road shortly thereafter to see all of you,” she wrote. The last show she did was on April 5 in San Francisco. See the full statement below.
It is with a heavy heart that I come with the news that due to unexpected recording commitments I need to postpone my upcoming international tour. Originally, I had planned this tour in support of Joyride, and as you know, the album has yet to be released.
My two biggest loves are music and my fans, and it is never my intention to disappoint anyone. I know there has been some confusion in regards to my album’s release date. Trust me, I am as eager to get it out to you as you are to hear it. I will be wrapping up the finishing touches on Joyride by the end of May, and will be back on the road shortly thereafter to see all of you. If you know anything about me, you know this was the last thing I would ever want to do.
I know there will be a lot of questions about this. I am going to do a live Q&A on my Facebook tomorrow to answer them all. Stay tuned for more info on that.
Thank you for your love, support and patience always. It means the world to me.
